The NAS and all the W-unit and VisAO electronics landed in Chile early on Tuesday morning. The first part of MagAO has now arrived in Chile!
Our other big news is that the ASM – meaning the thin shell itself and the ‘unit’, which means the reference body and attached electronics – has left Arcetri and is on the way to the airport in Firenze. This process will take a few days for customs etc. The pictures below, courtesy of Armando Riccardi, show the final stages of packing the ASM and loading it on a truck.
