Abstract
The European Extremely Large telescope project is in phase B and scheduled to present a construction proposal to the ESO Council by the end of 2009 or early 2010. The telescope baseline is for a fully steerable 42-m, segmented primary, 5 mirror design, fully adaptive system with Nasmyth and coude foci. This paper describes the current state of affairs with the European ELT and, in view of this conference celebrating Arne Ardeberg's contributions to astronomy, contains the occasional, totally incomplete, retrospective to earlier work in the field focusing on a single paper by Ardeberg et al in 1996.
