Neptune closer than ever: Super Sharp Pictures form the Edge of our Solar System
by Franziska Gräfe published Jul 18, 2018 last modified Mar 01, 2019 01:05 PM — filed under: , , ,
18 July 2018. Astronomers from the Leibniz-Institute for Astrophysics Potsdam (AIP) tested as part of an international team a new observation mode with the MUSE instrument at the Very Large Telescope (VLT) in Chile in June 2018. The technology used for the first time suppresses the blurred effects of the atmosphere even better and produces very sharp images of planets, stars and galaxies – among others of Neptune, which was once discovered at the predecessor institute of the AIP.
