Fitting mirror segments to the Large Size Telescope

On Thursday I went up to the Roque, and I was surprised by progress on the Large Size Telescope. Every time I see it, it’s more impressive. Most of the mirror segments have been fitted now. I’m looking forward to the day they remove the white covering and replace the reddish brown counterweght with the camera support.



I believe the inauguration is planned for October.
