"Abu" infrared camera is installed on the Gemini South telescope

Nigel Sharp and Bill Ball are dwarfed by the immense 8 meter mirror in the Gemini South telescope. Only part of the underside of the support for the mirror is visible in the image. The "Abu" infrared imager can be seen behind Nigel and Bill, hanging from the bottom side of the mirror inside of a yellow cage of support material. Large structural supports for the heavy mirror can be seen in both the foreground and background of the image.
