First light

GOTO has had first light!
After an intensive week of installation work, the first actual GOTO image was taken in the night of 10-11 June, on La Palma. The picture is below.

A team consisting of people from Warwick University (Danny Steeghs, Krzysztof Ulaczyk, James McCormac and Paul Chote), together with a handful of engineers, have been putting the telescope together: mount, boom-arm and the four individual unit telescopes. Some time-lapse videos of the installation are available on YouTube.
