OmegaCAM

This is a close-up of OmegaCAM. Its primary goal is to provide faint and/or rare objects for VLT spectroscopic follow-up. In addiction it will offer a powerful survey capability per se in a large variety of astrophysical domains. Examples are 1) search for trans-neptunian objects; 2) micro-lensing surveys in the Galactic bulge region; 3) search for distant clusters of galaxies. This photograph was obtained in Decemeber 2005.
