First technical light of TRAPPIST-nord

On this day of Astronomy we are very happy to show you one of the first image taken with TRAPPIST-North ! After one month of civil work, 2 weeks of installation of the dome and the telescope, and one week of commissioning we got the first very promising images. Here 30 seconds on planetary nebula M27 with the V filter without any calibration. TRAPPIST-North, installed at the Oukaimeden Observatory in the Atlas montains of Morocco, will be ready soon to study the northern sky exoplanets and comets.
