Centro de Estudios de Física del Cosmos de Aragón

CEFCA Foundation is an institution of the Government of Aragón which aims at creating in Teruel a center for research in Astrophysics and Cosmology, called Centro de Estudios de Física del Cosmos de Aragón, whose activities focus on the technological development and operation of the Observatorio Astrofísico de Javalambre (OAJ) and on its scientific exploitation. The main research lines of CEFCA are Galaxy Evolution and Cosmology.


First light of T80Cam

T80Cam first light

T80Cam, the scientific camera of the JAST/T80 telescope, has taken its first image of the Javalambre night sky.

This achievement is known as First Light, as this is the first time that light coming from an astronomical object is registered by the T80Cam detector. The selected object was M101 (or NGC 5457), which is a spiral galaxy located 25 million light years from earth.

Integration of T80Cam in JAST/T80

The scientific instrument for the JAST/T80 telescope, T80Cam, has been successfully installed at the Cassegrain focus of the JAST/T80 telescope.

After the assembly, verification and test phase performed at the CEFCA’s laboratory (Teruel), the T80Cam was shipped to the Observatorio Astrofísico de Javalambre late December 2014. Once received at the OAJ, the system was reassembled and tested again and, finally, the camera was installed on the JAST/T80 telescope on January 27, 2015.

J-PLUS filters have been received and accepted at CEFCA headquarters (Teruel).

The filters have been manufactured by SCHOTT (Yverdon-les-Bains, Switzerland). These have been specifically developed for the J-PLUS survey and have required more than two years of research and development effort both from SCHOTT and CEFCA.
