Magellan Telescopes

The Las Campanas Observatory on Cerro Las Campanas in Chile, operates twin 6.5-m optical telescopes for a consortium of institutions, which includes Harvard University, the Carnegie Observatories, MIT, the University of Michigan, and the University of Arizona. Separated by 60 m, the twin telescopes afford fine "natural seeing," from an elevation of 2400 m (8000 feet) in the Chilean Andes and unparalleled access to the Southern Hemisphere skies for astronomers.
