How the ELT will look like at Cerro Armazones

The Extremely Large Telescope (ELT) will sit on top of Cerro Armazones, approximately 3046 metres high in Chile’s Atacama Desert, surrounded by breathtaking views of the plains below. This image (an artistic rendering) shows how the telescope will look like on top of the mountain. The levelling of the summit of Cerro Armazones, in preparation for the construction of the ELT, was completed in 2015.
