UVES at ESO Headquarters

Closing the instrument - the first darkness : This photo was taken mid-August 1998 after all heavy components had been lifted onto the table and the upper half of the enclosure had been mounted. The engineer is operating the motorized lifting system. In its normal (lowered) position the enclosure provides a light-tight, thermally stable environment for the sensitive optics and detectors inside.
