The Canada-France-Hawaii Telescope
The Canada-France-Hawaii Telescope (CFHT) is a non-profit organization that operates a world class 3.6 meter telescope atop Mauna Kea, a dormant Hawaiian volcano rising 4,200 meters (14,000 feet) above the Pacific Ocean. The Observatory headquarters are located nearby in Waimea (Kamuela, Big Island, Hawaii), where CFHT has been part of the community since 1977. The CFHT team of some 50 people includes engineers, technicians, astronomers, and administrators. The role of CFHT is to operate, maintain and upgrade all the observatory systems, to make sure that the telescope remains scientifically competitive, and to provide first rate instrumentation to its users community : CFHT is currently open to astronomers from Canada, France and Hawaii, the European Union through Opticon and Taiwan and Brazil through collaboration agreements.

CFHT's returns from the sales of the DVD are forked back in its outreach and education activities.
