Various aspects of the construction, operation and calibration of the recently completed deep-sea ANTARES neutrino telescope are described. Some first results obtained with a partial five line configuration are presented, including depth dependence of the atmospheric muon rate, the search for point-like cosmic neutrino sources and the search for dark matter annihilation in the Sun. 
Results from the ANTARES neutrino telescope
The ANTARES underwater neutrino telescope is located in the Mediterranean Sea about 40 km from Toulon at a depth of 2475 m. In its 12 line configuration it has almost 900 photomultipliers in 275Expand
