CASLEO

The "El Leoncito" Astronomical Complex (Complejo Astronómico El Leoncito, CASLEO, in Spanish) was formally created in May 1983 as a National Service Center for the Astronomical Community by an agreement between the National Scientific and Technical Research Council (CONICET in Spanish) and the National Universities of La Plata, Córdoba and San Juan. Its goals and functions include the maintenance, operation and management of the facilities run by the Complex, while providing astronomical observation services to investigators licensed to operate in the field, and performing other technical and scientific activities which might contribute to the development of the astronomical sciences.

The opening ceremony of CASLEO's facilities was on September 12th, 1986, so in 2011 we reached 25 years of uninterrupted work. In this link you can download a copy of the local newspaper of that date.
