In September 25th, at 22:57h Local Time, the Javalambre Survey Telescope (JST/T250) achieved engineering first light.

This is a very important milestone in the project since it is the first time that photons from the Universe, in this case coming from the Polaris star, have gone through the complete optical system of the telescope as it was designed: collected by the 2.55m primary mirror, reflected at the 1.2m secondary mirror, corrected through the complex field corrector of 60cm lenses, and finally successfully focused at the 50cm focal plane of the telescope.
