Mirror Installed on First VLT Unit Telescope

The Zerodur mirror is prepared for the next stage - the critical lift-off from the supports in the transport box. Before this can happen, all elements that have fixed the mirror into the box during its long voyage, must be removed. (Photo obtained on April 11, 1998).
