First Light on the VISTA Telescope...

The VISTA telescope – designed in the U.K., located in Chile – images in both visible and infrared wavelengths.  The image at right is of the Flame Nebula.  It's now been handed off from the development team to operations.

Congratulations to the folks who worked so hard to put this thing together!
