The mount (left), for the Sloan Digital Sky Survey's 2.5-meter telescope at the Apache Point Observatory in the Sacramento Mountains of New Mexico. The telescope will achieve first light in May. The garage-like structure in the foreground rolls forward to cover the telescope when it is not in use. At right is the Sky Survey's monitor telescope.
