Artist's rendering of the Extremely Large Telescope

Artist's depiction of the Extremely Large Telescope (ELT) on Cerro Armazones in northern Chile.

At a ceremony in Garching bei München, Germany on 25 May 2016, ESO signed the contract with the ACe Consortium, consisting of Astaldi, Cimolai and the nominated sub-contractor EIE Group for the dome and telescope structure of the ELT. This was the largest contract ever awarded by ESO and the largest ever contract in ground-based astronomy. At this occasion the construction design of the E-ELT was unveiled.

This artist’s rendering of the ELT is based on the detailed construction design for the telescope.
