Chelmos Observatory - Aristarchos Telescope

The Chelmos Observatory with the Aristarchos telescope is situated on the second highest peak of Chelmos, Neraidorachi, at 2,330 meters. (The highest is the Psili Korifi, 20 meters higher.) The Aristarchos is considered one of the most technologically advanced telescopes on the continent. It was established here because the area has one of the lowest levels of light pollution in Europe. Outside the observatory buildings there is an inscription dedicated to the astrophysicist Emilios Charlavtis, who was on the scientific team that set up the telescope, but who sadly lost his life in an avalanche on the Mainalo mountain range before he could see the work completed.
