This is how the Large Size Telescope site looked yesterday. The big circular base for the telescope seems to be almost complete, as does the square base for the tower.

The telescopes either side of the LST site and a little in front of it are the two MAGIC telescopes, which are similar to the way the finished LST will look.

You can read more about the MAGIC and why the towers are always due north of the telescope itself HERE http://dragontree.sheilacrosby.com/blog/books-in-english/the-magic-telescope/
