During the last months has been carried out the installation process of the main storage and processing systems for the UPAD/T250. The infrastructure has been provided and installed by the companies Bull España S.A. and Fujitsu Technologies Solutions S.A. These systems increase the already existing capabilities of the UPAD/T80 in order to deal with the huge amount of data produced by JPCam once the camera is installed at JST/T250 telescope.

T80Cam, the scientific camera of the JAST/T80 telescope of the Observatorio Astrofísico de Javalambre (CEFCA's observatory), has taken its first image of the Javalambre night sky. This achievement is known as First Light, as this is the first time that light coming from an astronomical object is registered by the T80Cam detector.
The Centro de Estudios de Física del Cosmos de Aragón (CEFCA) has installed the computer equipment for the robotic control of the Observatorio Astrofísico de Javalambre (OAJ) and the storage and processing of the first data that will be provided by the telescopes of the OAJ.
