T80Cam first light

T80Cam, the scientific camera of the JAST/T80 telescope, has taken its first image of the Javalambre night sky.

This achievement is known as First Light, as this is the first time that light coming from an astronomical object is registered by the T80Cam detector. The selected object was M101 (or NGC 5457), which is a spiral galaxy located 25 million light years from earth.

Integration of T80Cam in JAST/T80

The scientific instrument for the JAST/T80 telescope, T80Cam, has been successfully installed at the Cassegrain focus of the JAST/T80 telescope.

After the assembly, verification and test phase performed at the CEFCA’s laboratory (Teruel), the T80Cam was shipped to the Observatorio Astrofísico de Javalambre late December 2014. Once received at the OAJ, the system was reassembled and tested again and, finally, the camera was installed on the JAST/T80 telescope on January 27, 2015.
