OmegaCAM

Image of the OmegaCAM under construction, the camera for the VLT Survey Telescope (VST) in the Chilean desert. The OmegaCAM will provide views of faint and rare objects for the Very Large Telescope to then examine, and work as a surveyor for trans-Neptunian objects, distant galaxy clusters, and other astronomical objects. It will be the successor of the present Wide Field Imager (WFI) at the 2.2-m MPG/ESO Telescope on La Silla.
