OmegaCAM

The primary goal of OmegaCAM at the VST is to provide faint and/or rare objects for VLT spectroscopic follow-up. In addition it will offer a powerful survey capability per se in a large variety of astrophysical domains. Examples are 1) search for trans-neptunian objects; 2) micro-lensing surveys in the Galactic bulge region; 3) search for distant clusters of galaxies. This photograph was obtained in September 2004.
