Video News Release 1: Recent work at the first 8.2-m VLT Unit Telescope (UT1)

ESO Video News Reel 1 is published on October 19, 1998, and contains video material related to the recent work at the first 8.2-m VLT Unit Telescope (UT1). The main part is dedicated to the FORS instrument that was recently installed and tested at the Cassegrain focus of this telescope. There are sequences from Paranal and the testing of FORS, statements by one of the participating scientists about FORS and its performance, as well as some of the first images obtained with the new instrument.

This Video News Release is targeted especially at broadcasters for further editing. In order to keep the audio tracks editable, different sound information has been recorded on two separate tracks at optimal volumes as is common standard in professional post production. This video is not meant for on screen viewing — on ESOcasts are better suited for that.
