Danish 0.5-metre telescope

The Danish 0.5-metre telescope has been installed on La Silla in 1971, together with its twin, the ESO 50cm. It was equipped with a revolutionary photometer that permitted simultaneous observations in all the filters of the Stromgren system. Moreover, the telescope was fully programmable, which made it a precursor as automatic telescopes.
