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.
