Caption: Solar telescope. Astronomer uses a solar telescope in a dome at the Pic du Midi observatory in the Pyrenees mountains, southwest France. The observatory's high altitude (2870 metres) means that astronomical observations are affected less by atmospheric pollution and air turbulence than they would be at lower altitudes.
