Abstract
The first VLT unit telescope, Antu, saw first light in May 1998 and started science operation in April 1999, roughly at the same time as first light of unit telescope 2, Kueyen, was achieved. The time between first light and science operation is used to verify, quantify, qualify and optimize the functionality and performance of the telescopes and their instruments.
