Early Construction on VLT

The image shows the top ring of the main strucure mounted and aligned, already painted in its definitive silver color (the interior part that faces the optical path will later be painted black to minimize internal optical reflections). The photograph was taken at the Ansaldo Energia premises in Milan (Italy).
