Timelapse Of ESO Very Large Telescope : World's Largest Telescope Gets Green Light
The European Southern Observatory Very Large Telescope array at Paranal, Chile. An array of four "Unit Telescopes", each with a main mirror of 8.2 metres in diameter. With one such telescope, images of celestial objects as faint as magnitude 30 have been obtained in a one-hour exposure. This corresponds to seeing objects that are four billion times fainter than those seen with the naked eye.
The VLT also has four additional 1.8-metre moveable Auxiliary Telescopes. One of the most exciting features of the VLT is the option to use it as a giant optical interferometer (VLT Interferometer or VLTI). This is done by combining the light from several of either the Unit Telescopes or Auxiliary Telescopes. In this interferometric mode, the telescope has a vision as sharp as that of a telescope the size of the separation between the most distant mirrors. For the VLTI with the Auxiliary Telescopes, this is up to 200 metres....

"The European Extremely Large Telescope (E-ELT) will be a 129-foot (39-meter) segmented-mirror telescope sited atop a mountain called Cerro Armazones in northern Chile, close to ESO’s Paranal Observatory. It will be many times more sensitive than any other instrument of its kind, researchers said..."

Re: Timelapse Of ESO Very Large Telescope : World's Largest Telescope Gets Green Light
Oh look, here's an interesting statement, "The telescopes can work together, to form a giant ‘interferometer’, the ESO Very Large Telescope Interferometer, allowing astronomers to see details up to 25 times finer than with the individual telescopes. The light beams are combined in the VLTI using a complex system of mirrors in underground tunnels where the light paths must be kept equal to distances less than 1/1000 mm over a hundred metres. With this kind of precision the VLTI can reconstruct images with an angular resolution of milliarcseconds, equivalent to distinguishing the two headlights of a car at the distance of the Moon..."

Gee, what is there on the Moon larger than the distance between two car headlights?

Or they found it and simple cannot tell anything. Who knows for sure!

You know that VLT time is controlled and not only that, I believe information is also controlled.

World's largest telescope project gets green light
Published June 13, 2012
[link to www.foxnews.com]

"Plans for the mega-telescope, appropriately called the European Extremely Large Telescope (E-ELT), were approved by the governing council of the European Southern Observatory (ESO), officials announced Monday.
"This is an excellent outcome and a great day for ESO," ESO Director General Tim de Zeeuw said in a statement. "We can now move forward on schedule with this giant project." The E-ELT will be a 129-foot (39-meter) segmented-mirror telescope sited atop a mountain called Cerro Armazones in northern Chile, close to ESO’s Paranal Observatory. It will be many times more sensitive than any other instrument of its kind, researchers said..."

Why can't they find this alleged rogue planet in our system? They can photograph a Planet circling a distant Star, photograph a Star circling the Black Hole in the center of our Galaxy, photograph a tiny Rock circling a somewhat larger Rock, but can't find this nearby rogue Planet...

They are situated in Chile, as seen in this FOV video;




Oh, WISE couldn't find it either.

With adaptive optics, the yellow lasers, it's cheaper to just build it on a mountain top in the boonies. My question is what will they call the next larger one?

"The next step beyond the VLT is to build a European Extremely Large optical/infrared Telescope (E-ELT) with a 40-metre-class primary mirror. The E-ELT will be "the world's biggest eye on the sky" - the largest optical/near-infrared telescope in the world and ESO is drawing up detailed construction plans together with the community. The E-ELT will address many of the most pressing unsolved questions in astronomy. It may, eventually, revolutionise our perception of the Universe, much as Galileo's telescope did, 400 years ago..."

"ESO is to build the largest optical/infrared telescope in the world. At its meeting in Garching today, the ESO Council approved the European Extremely Large Telescope (E-ELT) Programme, pending confirmation of four so-called ad referendum votes. The E-ELT will start operations early in the next decade. ESO’s governing body, the Council, met today, at the ESO Headquarters in Garching, Germany. The main topic on the agenda was the start of the European Extremely Large Telescope (E-ELT) Programme - the world’s biggest eye on the sky...."
