E-ELT in its Enclosure

June 2009 version of the design of the 40-metre-class European Extremely Large Telescope (E-ELT) in its enclosure, currently being planned by ESO (artist’s impression). The E-ELT will be mounted on a central concrete pier. 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.
