Author Affiliations +
The integration of the three main silicon carbide mirrors into the new 1.5 m solar telescope GREGOR at Izana on Tenerife, Spain is planned during 2006. We expect first light at the end of 2006. A progress report about integration of the optics and mechanics and planning of the commissioning phase of the telescope and post focus instruments will be presented at the meeting. The GREGOR telescope is build by a consortium of the Kiepenheuer Institut fur Sonnenphysik in Freiburg, the Astrophysikalische Institut Potsdam, the Institut fur Astronomie Gottingen and additional national and international Partners.
