Rubin AuxTel Under the Moonlight

Basking under the bright moonlight is the Rubin Auxiliary Telescope. Previously the Calypso Telescope at Kitt Peak National Observatory (KPNO), it was moved to its current site in Cerro Pachón after it was donated to the Rubin Observatory by its proprietor Edgar Smith. It will provide important complementary data for the Rubin Observatory throughout survey operations.
