E-ELT in its Enclosure (artist's impression)

Current design of the E-ELT in its enclosure. The E-ELT will be mounted on a central concrete pier that ensures a minimum clearance of 10 m above the ground. It will be shielded from the wind by a dome enclosure. This dome will have an approximate height of 80m and a footprint of about 100m diameter. The ramp will be used to access the enclosure.

The design for the E-ELT shown here was published in 2009 and is preliminary.
