The X-shooter instrument

The first of the second generation Very Large Telescope instrument, X-shooter, is now ready to start routine observations. X-shooter is unique among astronomical instruments installed at large telescopes, as it can record the entire spectrum of a celestial object in one shot — from the ultraviolet to the near-infrared — with great sensitivity and spectral resolution.
