We wish you a merry christmas - and a happy new year !
Saturday 25 December 2004, by Denis Mourard, Florentin Millour, Martin Vannier, Romain Petrov

Science Demonstration Time (SDT) team and Guaranteed Time Observation (GTO) teem wishes you a merry christmas from Paranal.

We found the VLTI even better than during Commissioning 2 : much better OPD model, much less vibrations...

SDT observations are in progress and we are looking forward a successful GTO starting tomorrow.
