First technical light of the STELLA-2 using the main mirror was achieved on Oct. 30 2008.
Mounting the prime-focus corrector
We had first technical light of the STELLA-2 telescope using its main
mirror on October 30st 2008. We installed the prime-focus corrector
and did some initial alignment work. We discovered that we lack a
possibility to adjust the corrector-position in radial direction.
Commissioning will start in a few months, when all remaining optical
parts (Atmospheric dispersion corrector, new calibration light feed,
new optical fiber including fiber-view capability) are available.
