IR camera helps astronomers watch stars being born

The first few images taken by a new near-infrared camera — LUCIFER 1 — is helping astronomers observe the faintest and most distant objects in the universe that are usually opaque to visible light. The new instrument, built by a consortium of German institutes, provides the scientists with a powerful tool to gain spectacular insights into the universe — from the Milky Way to extremely distant galaxies. The innovative design of LUCIFER 1 - that has been mounted on the world’s largest optical telescope the Large Binocular Telescope (LBT) at its focus points, allows astronomers to look into the unprecedented details like the star forming regions that are commonly hidden by dust clouds.
