Telescopes and Instrumentation

15 August 2023 was the last night of observation with Son OF Isaac (SOFI) at the New Technology Telescope (NTT) in La Silla. The following day, the instrument was warmed up and removed from the NTT’s Nasmyth A focus, in preparation for Son Of X-Shooter (SOXS) to be installed in its place.
