ESO Ultra HD Time-lapse Compilation
A compilation of time-lapses taken from each of ESO's three unique observing sites during the ESO Ultra HD Expedition.
First the team visited ESO’s Paranal Observatory in northern Chile, home to the Very Large Telescope array (VLT) — ESO’s flagship facility for European ground-based astronomy. They then drove to ALMA, the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array — a huge new facility at 5000 metres above sea level on the Chajnantor Plateau, dedicated to studying the cool Universe. Finally, the team headed to La Silla, ESO’s first observatory — home to the ESO 3.6-metre telescope and the 3.58-metre New Technology Telescope.
The material has been edited especially for broadcast use.
The ESO Ultra HD Expedition was supported by the following technology partners: Canon, Kids of All Ages, Novoflex, Angelbird, Sharp, Vixen, eMotimo, Peli, Magic MultiMedia, LRTimelapse, Intecro and Granite Bay Software. Information on the expedition’s technology partners can be found here.Credit:
