Engineering drawing of the E-ELT MICADO camera
On 18 September 2015 ESO signed an agreement with a consortium of institutes across Europe, to design and construct the MICADO camera (Multi-AO Imaging Camera for Deep Observations), one of the first-light instruments for the European Extremely Large Telescope (E-ELT). MICADO will be the first dedicated imaging camera for the giant telescope and will take the power of adaptive optics to the next level.
This picture shows how the instrument will look when installed on the E-ELT.Credit:
