MICADO agreement signed

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 the signing ceremony, with the Director of the Max Planck Institute for Extraterrestrial Physics Reinhard Genzel (left), and the ESO Director General Tim de Zeeuw (right). In the background from left are: Florian Kerber (Project Manager, ESO), Richard Davies (MPE, Principal Investigator), Suzanne Ramsay (Project Scientist, ESO) and Eckhard Sturm (Project Manager, MPE).
