Three VLT UT1 Photos and a Viewgraph
11 Febbraio 1999
Here are some recent wide-angle photos of the first 8.2-m VLT Unit Telescope (UT1) with FORS1 and ISAAC attached. Regular observations with these astronomical instruments are scheduled to start from April 1, 1999.
In addition, a new viewgraph is shown that is useful for illustration of future observational possibilities with the many different VLT instruments. It indicates the various epochs and types of objects that may be reached with these new and powerful facilities.
