T80Cam, the scientific camera of the JAST/T80 telescope of the Observatorio Astrofísico de Javalambre (CEFCA's observatory), has taken its first image of the Javalambre night sky. This achievement is known as First Light, as this is the first time that light coming from an astronomical object is registered by the T80Cam detector.
J-PLUS filters have been received and accepted at CEFCA headquarters (Teruel). The filters have been manufactured by SCHOTT (Yverdon-les-Bains, Switzerland). These have been specifically developed for the J-PLUS survey and have required more than two years of research and development effort both from SCHOTT and CEFCA.
