Caption

La Silla 3.6-metre telescope. View of the 3.6- metre telescope at the European Southern Observa- tory (ESO) site at La Silla, Chile. A technician at the base of the telescope is charging its Charge-Coupled Device (CCD) camera with liquid gas. The liquid gas cools the CCD and improves its sensitivity to incoming light. The 3.6-metre telescope is the largest optical device at La Silla. Photographed in 1997.
