VISTA observing the sky

Even though the VLT is the most famous telescope at the Paranal Observatory, it is by far not the only one. A bit aside from the large Unit Telescopes — which are still visible in the background — VISTA (Visible and Infrared Survey Telescope for Astronomy) is housed. In contrast to its bigger brothers VISTA’s observing time is totally devoted to mapping the sky systematically.
