Abstract
The 8.2m Subaru Telescope had its astronomical first light at the Cassegrain focus in January 1999. Commissioning of the telescope and its open use instruments are in progress. The scientific observations carried out so far are limited to the imaging observations using an optical camera, Suprime-Cam equipped with six 4K X 2K CCDs, and a near IR camera, CISCO with a 1K X 1K HgCdTe detector array. It was shown that Subaru has superb imaging performance. Described in this overview is a brief summary of the result from the 8 papers reporting the studies on extragalactic objects; a cluster of galaxies Abell 851, gravitational lensed quasar PG1115+080, radio galaxy B3 0731+438, radio galaxy 3C324 and its associated cluster, and the Hubble Deep Field North.
