DESI robotic positioners

An array of DESI robotic positioners, each equipped with a fiber-optic cable that will gather light from distant galaxies and quasars. The positioners, which move independently to target a pre-programmed sequence of astronomical objects, are held in a wedge-shaped “petal” that accommodates 500 robots. The completed array will feature 10 petals and 5,000 robots.
