Only a fraction of that uncertainty region had been imaged with CFHT on July 14, but operations at the existing telescopes were suspended on July 16, due to the protest on Maunakea.
Our CFHT spectrum taken in June 2012 has a S/N ~30 near the magnesium line and confirms that it is indeed strong and has an equivalent width (EW) of 0.95 [Angstrom].
Following the CFHT legacy survey, other surveys will also be using Space Warps as a means to find lens systems in their data.
At the time of writing, SITELLE is in the final phases of integration and testing, for a planned delivery at the CFHT in early 2014.
Although astronomers knew of the presence of a foreground stellar population since the 1960s, the new CFHT observations revealed that this population is more massive than first thought, and it is not uniformly distributed, clustering around the star iota Ori at the southern tip of Orion's sword.
Using images from the giant Canada-France-Hawaii Telescope (CFHT) the researchers calculated superluminous supernovae were at least ten times more common then than now.
In March 2008 the 3.G-meter Canada-France-Hawaii Telescope (CFHT) on Mauna Kea observed CoRoT-Exo7b's host star both during and after transits to ascertain whether the observed dimmings were due to an impostor.
This accumulated images over five years using the wide field imaging camera MegaCam, a 1 degree by 1 degree field-of-view, 340 Megapixel camera on the CFHT in Hawaii.
HOW WOULD YOU like to obtain observing time with the 8.1-meter Gemini North reflector and the 3.6-meter Canada-France- Hawaii Telescope (CFHT) atop Hawaii's legendary summit of Mauna Kea?
Team members from CNRS, CEA, CFHT, and the Observatoire de Lyon, studying two elliptical galaxies exhibiting features characteristic of a fairly recent merging, suggested that they are five times younger than commonly thought.
Images from the Canada-France-Hawaii Telescope (CFHT) have used this palette with good results.
