W.M. Keck Observatory
The W.M. Keck Observatory on the summit of Mauna Kea, Hawaii, is home to the
twin 10-m aperture telescopes that were constructed from 36 individual hexagonal
segments. The telescope's large apertures can be used to feed a number of visible
and infrared instruments, including natural guide star adaptive optics and a sodium-
laser-based laser guide star system.
