ESO 360

The 3p6 is the largest telescope at La Silla and was officially commisioned in 1977. The telescope has a horseshoe/fork mounting. It was designed with interchangeable top-units, an f 35 wobbling secondary mirror and a standard f 8.09 cassegrain focus. The telescope has a large Cassegrain cage in which it is possible to install the instriments and its control electronics. A Fiber Optic facility is installed between the cassegrain and the coude floor in order to operate its high accuracy spectrograph.
