The OmegaCAM Project


The OmegaCAM project involves: The consortium institutes will receive garanteed observing time and will conduct their own scientific programmes. The instrument will become publicly available as a general ESO facility. Within ESO the VST plus its instrumentation is regarded as another VLT instrument. The OmegaCAM will be the only instrument on the VST, at least in the first years. An important application of the VST and the OmegaCAM will be the selection of targets for further follow-up VLT observations.
