VLTI Tunnel and M16

The light from various telescopes can be combined interferometrically. Between the telescopes and the instrument where the various beams eventually converge, the light will be reflected on many mirrors. Here, in the VLTI tunnel, the table with the various M16 (16th miror on the beam, not MI-6) is the last step before the "VLTI laboratory".
