ADONIS (ADaptive OPtics Near Infrared System) is an upgrade of the COME-ON+ adaptive optics prototype. It will allow the astronomical community to use adaptive optics as a common user instrument. This paper describes the main features of the new system, including a mechanical and optical interface for specific visitor equipment and imaging capabilities. We present here the 128 X 128 infrared imaging camera, covering the 1 - 5 micrometers spectral range.
