Abstract
We present the optical setup, reconstruction scheme and observational results of the Multi-conjugate Adaptive Optics (MCAO) system at the German 70cm Vacuum Tower Telescope, Observatorio del Teide, Tenerife. The system serves as a testbed for the future MCAO of the new 1.5m GREGOR solar telescope and is an extension of the conventional Adaptive Optics (CAO) system. We demonstrate that the use of one additional MCAO wavefront sensor and one additional deformable mirror increases the corrected field of view from 10 to 35 arcseconds.
