First technical light STELLA-II

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.
