Caption

ESO 3.6-metre telescope. This telescope was built by the European Southern Observatory (ESO) at the La Silla Observatory, Chile. This was ESO's first observing site here, and this telescope was commissioned in 1977, and then upgraded in 1999. In 2002, the High Accuracy Radial Velocity Planet Searcher (HARPS) was installed. Here, the primary mirror is located below the dark protective cover, and the black structure above holds the secondary mirror. The white cube above that contains the computer that controls the secondary mirror. The mounting (blue) is used to point the telescope at target objects through the dome opening (upper left).Restrictions:.
