Abstract:
At its December meeting last year, I informed Council of my wish to terminate my appointment as Director General of ESO following the approval of the VLT proposal, expected later this year. Already at the time of my reappointment three years ago, Council was aware that I did not intend to serve out a full third five-year term, because of the desire to have more time for other activities. Now that the preparatory phase of the VLT has been completed with the formal presentation of the project to Council on 31 March and with approvallikely before the end of the year, 1 January 1988 seems to be the optimal time for a change in the management of ESO

Abstract:
The Swedish-ESO Submillimeter Telescope (SEST) is designed to achieve a reflector profile accuracy of 50 microns rms giving good (coherent) performance down to wavelengths of less than about 0.8 mm (375 GHz). La Silla is an important site for SEST owing to its southern location and low atmospheric attenuation. SEST control and data analysis are discussed as well as its operations and scientific program.

Abstract:
Photometry of MXB 1636-53 required simultaneous measurements at high time resolution in 15 data channels. A graph is given of the count-rates obtained for the comparison star during the first night. A periodogram analysis of the data revealed a possible period of 3.76 h.

Line and continuum imaging.

Abstract:
The study of line emitting objects often requires to image separately the line emission from the continuum one, in order to discriminate the different physical components. This is generally not possible with the broad bands of the standard photometrie systems, like UBVRI. Rather one should use narrower bands selected according to the wavelengths of the emission lines. I discuss here the techniques to obtain pure and calibrated line and continuum images. "Pure" means that the line image is free from the contribution of the continuum and vice versa.. Since narrowband imaging is not a new teehnique, I will restriet myself to the eonsiderable improvements recently offered by the availability of linear and calibratable detectors, of interferenee filter sets and of powerful and versatile image reduction systems. Although I will concentrate here on images of active galaxies obtained with the ESO telescopes and GGD cameras at La Silla and reduced using MIDAS, the following discussion can be applied with small modifications to any class of line emilting objects and to other sites, detectors and reduction systems. I will first give some hints on how to conduct the observations and then discuss the reduction procedure. A technical note containing more detailed information is available from the author for those interested in actually using these techniques.

Velocity and velocity dispersion fields of NGC 6684 - an SBO galaxy with a ring

Abstract:
NGC 6684 was observed in May 1983 and March 1984 with the 3.6-m telescope of the European Southern Observatory in La Silla, Chile. A progressive NW shift of the bar isophote was observed, revealing a displacement of the bar center with respect to the galaxy nucleus. The mean rotation at PA = 35 deg (near the major axis) and PA = 80 deg shows almost equal velocity values; this is an indication of elliptic orbits.

Abstract:
Observations of planetary nebulae performed with the image dissecting scanner (IDS) of the 1.52-m telescope at La Silla are discussed. The quality of the IDS data is analyzed with attention given to reliability, measurement of blends, and the nonlinearity of the IDS system. Misclassified planetary nebulae are identified and some physical properties of planetary nebulae are determined.

Abstract:
OPTOPUS is a fiber-optic instrument for multiple-object spectroscopy with the Boiler & Chivens spectrograph and a CCD detector at the 3.6-m telescope. The system has been described in detail by the Optical Instrumentation Group (1985, The Messenger 41,25). Its application for observing Halley's comet has been reported by Lund and Surdej (1986, The Messenger 43, 1). Here another "classical" use of multiple-object spectroscopy is presented: followup observations of quasar candidates.

Abstract:
Preparing an Observing Proposal ... ... has become an increasingly challenging exercise. With an ever higher pressure on space experiments and on large ground-based telescopes (and in particular those of ESO), it has become imperative to present extremely well-prepared documents to selection committees to get the observing time sought for.

Abstract:
Images of Io were obtained with the 2.2-m telescope at La Silla in the imaging code coupled with a CCD detector. The strong emission from Io's continuum was significantly decreased through the use of an occulting mask in the telescope focal plane. It was found that a spectral resolution of 5 A or better was desirable.

Abstract:
The multichannel multicolor photometer (MCCP) consists of three separate fiber optic input channels, each splitting the light into five colors via highly efficient prism spectrographs. The MCCP permits simultaneous high-resolution measurement of three sources in five colors. Photometruc data obtained at La Silla are presented. The MCCP has been successfully applied to the investigation of optical pulses from the X-ray burster MXB 1636 + 53.

Abstract:
The paper reports the discovery of a pair of quasars with a redshift of 1.345, separated by 4.2 arcsec in projection, apparently associated with the radio source PKS 1145-071. The imaging CCD, spectroscopic, and radio observations are presented. The possibility that this pair is situated towards a high-redshift galaxy cluster is discussed.

Abstract:
Preliminary results for three field stars observed in the SMC are presented. The curve of growth of iron in the star AZVI 197 is shown. It is found that the metallicities of all the young supergiants in the SMC coincide, within determination errors, with the 'metallicities' (i.e., oxygen abundances) of young gaseous objects such as H II regions and planetary nebulae.

Abstract:
A galactic cluster was observed at z = 0.69 with the 3.6-m ESO telescope at La Silla. A graph is given of the ' background ' galaxies and total number of cluster galaxies expected in a 10 x 10 arcmin field. The probability of cluster detection was computed as a function of the signal to noise (and therefore as a function of z) both analytically and using 3,000 simulations for clusters varying in terms of richness and population. It was found that the evolution of galaxies enhances the cluster visibility.

AA(Pic-du-Midi et Toulouse, Observatoires, Toulouse, France)
Abstract:
The spectrum of the eastern end of the arc in A 370 was obtained, and after data reduction, it was maintained that the light probably comes from a galaxy at a redshift of 0.59. It is believed that an exceptional configuration of gravitational lensing was observed, with the whole cluster as the deflector and a galaxy at z = 0.59 as the source. If the system/source deflector is perfectly aligned, the theory predicts the formation of a circular ring; if the source lies at 1 arcsec from the cluster center, the formation of two symmetric arcs can be predicted.

Abstract:
En la reunion celebrada en diciembre dei ano pasado informe al Consejo de mi deseo de terminar mi contrato como Director General de la ESO una vez que fuera aprobado el proyecto dei VLT, que se espera sucedera hacia fines de este aAo. Cuando fue renovada mi designacion hace tres aAos, el Consejo conocia mi intencion de no completar los cinco aAos dei contrato debido a mi deseo de disponer de mas tiempo para otras actividades. Ahora, una vez terminada la fase preparatoria para el VLT, Y habiendose presentado el proyecto formalmente al Consejo el dia 31 de marzo, y esperando su muy probable aprobacion antes dei termino de este ano, me parece que el 10 de enero de 1988 presenta una excelente fecha para que se produzca un cambio en la administracion de la ESO.
