    The Vera C. Rubin Observatory, previously referred to as the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope (LSST), is an astronomical observatory currently under construction in main task will be an astronomical survey, the Legacy Survey of Space and Time (LSST). The Rubin Observatory has a wide-field reflecting telescope with an meter primary mirror that will photograph the entire available Location(s): Cerro Pachón, Coquimbo Region, Chile.   The Hubble Space Telescope has been a shining example of the advantage of having telescopes in space for two decades. taken by Earth-based telescopes. While ground-based observatories are Author: Remy Melina.

Ground-based observatories, located on the surface of Earth, are used to make observations in the radio and visible light portions of the electromagnetic spectrum. Most optical telescopes are housed within a dome or similar structure, to protect the delicate instruments from the elements. Telescope domes have a slit or other opening in the roof that can be opened during observing, and closed when the telescope .

The large number of submissions to and excellent attendance at the Ground-based and Airborne Telescopes IV conference reflects the strong and growing interest in the astronomical and engineering communities. More than papers were submitted to this year's conference, the largest number in the series' history.

This year's conference included 28 oral sessions and two poster sessions. Telescopes on Earth cost less because they don't need to be launched into space, and the materials used in creating an terrestrial telescope are not as expensive.

The two ground-based Gemini telescopes each cost about $ million. whereas the Hubble telescope. adshelp[at] The ADS is operated by the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory under NASA Cooperative Agreement NNX16AC86ACited by: This conference is the latest in the series on Ground Based and Airborne Telescopes.

Construction of the next generation of extremely large telescopes is underway: the Giant Magellan Telescope (GMT), ESO’s Extremely Large Telescope (ELT), and the Thirty Meter Telescope (TMT) are becoming reality and involve contributing teams from all over the world.

Ground-based Extremely Large Telescopes with aperture diameters of m will reach their ultimate imaging capabilities by means of Adaptive Optics (AO) systems. One of the fundamental limitations of AO systems working with Natural Guide Stars (NGSs) is very low sky coverage, especially in the visible.
