Bochum 0.61-metre telescope (decommissioned)
The Bochum 0.61-metre telescope was installed on La Silla in 1968 following a trilateral agreement between ESO, the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (German Research Foundation) and the University of Bochum. This telescope has the honour of being the first national telescope — belonging to one of the member states — in ESO's history. The telescope, manufactured by Boller & Chivens, was equipped with a photoelectric photometer made at the central workshop of Göttingen University.
