E-ELT in its Enclosure (Portrait)

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 90 m and a footprint of about 90 m diameter. The ramp will be used to access the enclosure.
