"First light" for NAOS-CONICA at VLT YEPUN

The first image in the infrared K-band (wavelength 2.2 µm) of a star (visual magnitude 8) obtained - before (left) and after (right) the adaptive optics was switched on (see the text). The middle panel displays the 3-D intensity profiles of these images, demonstrating the tremendous gain, both in image sharpness and central intensity.
