First GTC data for the ESO/GTC SHARDS project
The new Moon at March 13rd and 14th provided excellent quality nights at the Roque de los Muchachos Observatory. These days Pablo G. Pérez (SHARDS PI) and J. Gallego were visitors at the 10.4m GTC telescope. During this observing run, GUAIX members obtained superb deep images using the first of the medium band filters corresponding to the ESO/GTC SHARDS project.
