Optimal Conditions, Great Viewing
MIKE WHEELER, MANAGING EDITOR

Nestled in the Andes mountain range in the Atacama Desert in Chile sits the Las Campanas Observatory. At an elevation of almost 8,000 feet, the remote location is prized for its dark skies, excellent weather and superior visibility. Soon it will be home to the Giant Magellan Telescope (GMT) now under construction.
