Mounted image 16: VLT and VISTA in early sunlight
This early morning shot shows the Visible and Infrared Survey Telescope for Astronomy (VISTA) in front of the Paranal summit. VISTA is a wide-field telescope that will perform a series of very broad surveys of the sky in infrared light. VISTA surveys will create large catalogues of celestial objects for statistical studies for the identification of new targets for the VLT.
