21 February 2003 Magdalena Ridge Observatory optical interferometer: a status report
Author Affiliations +
The Magdalena Ridge Observatory (MRO) project is presently funded to design and build a facility including an optical/infrared imaging interferometer composed of up to 10 1.5 meter class telescopes and a single conventional 2.4 meter class telescope. The interferometer array will be arranged in a “Y” configuration and the use of movable telescopes will allow its reconfiguration from a very compact array with baselines up to tens of meters to a true long baseline configuration with baselines up to 400 meters. We plan to introduce adaptive optics systems on the array telescopes.
