A closer look at the top of the telescope
shows the MegaPrime upper end installed on the top ring of the telescope
structure. All the MegaPrime instrumentation is supported by a very
stiff base held high above the telescope by four arms (black) attached
to a base ring (white). The Wide Field Corrector
is bolted to the base from underneath; its first lens is visible on the
picture. The rest of MegaPrime
is protected by a cover, seen in the picture as a black and silver structure.
