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 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.
