The latest edition of ESO's quarterly journal, The Messenger, is now available online. In this Issue 183 our readers will find a summary of ESO’s Strategy for the 2020s, learn about the prospects for future exoplanet imaging based on high-precision astrometric studies with VLT/SPHERE, as well as explore the low-surface brightness regime of galaxies thanks to the VST Early-type GAlaxy Survey (VEGAS).

This issue also includes articles explaining how new features and observing modes for ALMA are tested and then made available to the users, plans for instrument upgrades on the VLT, as well as reports on two ESO workshops held online in October 2020. The issue concludes with the profiles of two fellows at ESO, describing what sparked their interest in astronomy and their current research.
