The NELIOTA project has completed its 2-month commissioning phase, which started in January 2017. The lunar observations are being used to validate the performance of the software and fine-tune the detection algorithm. The 22-month observational campaign will begin on March 21, 2017. An image of the non-illuminated side of the Moon obtained by NELIOTA on February 1, 2017 is shown.
