The star HIC 59206 (AO corrected image)

This is the first image obtained by the first MACAO-VLTI system at the 8.2-m VLT KUEYEN telescope in the infrared K-band (wavelength 2.2 µm). It displays images of the star HIC 59206 (visual magnitude 10) obtained after the adaptive optics system was switched on, allowing the two stars to be clearly seen. The binary stars are separated by 0.120 arcsec and the image was taken under medium seeing conditions (0.75 arcsec).
