The images of the sky are taken at the Las Campanas Observatory
The maps are the first major discovery to come out of the new southern operations of SDSS's Apache Point Observatory Galaxy Evolution Experiment 2 (APOGEE-2) survey, which is being carried out on the Irenee du Pont Telescope at Las Campanas Observatory
Chile's Las Campanas Observatory
already hosts the twin Magellan Telescopes, each bearing a 6.5-meter (21-foot) mirror.
EDT, the Swope Telescope--the oldest and smallest of a collection of four optical telescopes at the Carnegie Institute of Science's Las Campanas Observatory
in Chile--detected a bright optical counterpart to the gamma-ray burst and gravitational-wave signals, in a galaxy called NGC 4993.
The images, captured over a period of 45 nights using the 6.5 meter Baade Telescope at the Las Campanas Observatory
in Chile, reveal galaxies that existed when the universe was just 1.3 billion years old.
Both observations were done with the 1.3metre Warsaw Telescope at Las Campanas Observatory
in Chile as part of the Optical Gravitational Lensing Experiment (OGLE).
Smith Telescope at McDonald Observatory, and the remaining stars (visible only from the southern hemisphere) with the Clay Magellan Telescope at Las Campanas Observatory
On 23 February 1987, Ian Shelton took a photograph the Large Magellanic Cloud at the Las Campanas Observatory
Presentations were given by representatives from many of the leading automated surveys, including Carl Akerlof of the Robotic Transient Research Experiment (ROTSE) comprising a global network of instruments, and Katarzyna Malek of the 'Pi in the Sky Observatory' project located in Las Campanas Observatory
By using Magellan I and II, the twin 6.5-meter telescopes now nearing completion at Las Campanas Observatory
in Chile, Marcy and Butler hope by 2003 to double the number of stars that their team monitors.
Keck Observatory on Mauna Kea also consists of two identical telescopes, and the Las Campanas Observatory
is already home to the twin 6.5-m Magellan Telescopes.
