  • Det danske teleskop
The Danish telescope was built by Grubb-Parsons, and has been in use at La Silla since 1979. The telescope has an off-axis mount and the optics are of a Ritchey-Chretien design. On account of the telescope's mount and the limited space inside the dome, the telescope has significant pointing restrictions. The telescope is at a geographical location of 70°44'7"662W 29°15'14"235S and an altitude of 2340 metres
