9 August 2016 MICADO: the camera support structure at the E-ELT Nasmyth focus
Author Affiliations +
MICADO is one of the first light instruments at the E-ELT and is designed to work with the MCAO system MAORY. The ability to operate in a stand-alone mode without MAORY includes an additional SCAO wavefront sensing system. Therefore, the instrument support structure has to fulfil two purposes, a) the positioning of the camera in its stand-alone mode and b) when it will be mounted downstream of the MCAO facility MAORY. The instrument support structure of MICADO is addressed regarding its basic functionalities such as passive and possible active positioning of the instrument. Very first FEA results will be given as well as other performance assessments.
