Chile was rocked by an 8.8 magnitude earthquake on Saturday, and while hundreds were killed, Discovery.com has cast light on the many telescopes of Chile, built there for the low humidity and high altitudes. Pictured is the European Southern Observatory’s VLT which was built on a 2,635 meter high mountain in the Atacama desert of Chile, which is 50 times drier than Death Valley in California. It’s also 1,370km north of the earthquake’s epicenter, with the Gemini South Observatory just 800km away from the epicenter on the Cerro Pachón mountain. Its servers went offline for a while after the quake, but have been restored—with other telescopes in the area faring just as well, with just power cuts reported so far

World’s Fastest and Most Sensitive Astronomical Camera Shoots 1500 Images Per Second [Telescopes]

Developed by British scientists for the VLT (very large telescope) , the CCD200 detector is the world’s fastest and most sensitive astronomical camera —capable of shooting an astonishing 1500 images per second. “This breakthrough camera is without an equivalent anywhere in the world,” says Norbert Hubin, head of the Adaptive Optics for ESO space agency. “The camera will enable great leaps forward in many areas of the study of the universe.” Ok, so the images are only 240 x 240, but it does produces around 10x digital noise than current VLT cameras
