Prof. Fernando Comeron

ESO Representative in Chile

As ESO faces construction of the 39.3m Extremely Large Telescope in the coming years, its current facilities include a wide range of telescopes and instruments that already now offer to its users access to a large parameter space of observing techniques and wavelength ranges. These capabilities continue to be upgraded and some interesting developments will be available in the near future. The talk will present an overview of the facilities, both in operation and coming up in the coming years, at all ESO sites in Chile, as well as the opportunities that ESO offers to get involved in them.
