MICADO - The Multi-AO Imaging Camera for Deep Observations

MICADO is the Multi-AO Imaging Camera for Deep Observations, which has been designed to work with adaptive optics on the 42-m European Extremely Large Telescope. The instrument has been optimized for the multi-conjugate adaptive optics (MCAO) module MAORY but it is also able to work with other adaptive optics systems. In particular, it includes a separate module to provide a single conjugate adaptive optics (SCAO) capability with natural guide stars during the early operational phase. In this talk, I discuss few of the key science drivers for MICADO and show how these have shaped its design. I will also show the results of simulations of crowded stellar fields that we have obtained using expected PSFs of MICADO. Photometry is then performed on these simulated images to test photometric accuracy achieved in different crowding regimes, effect of anisoplanatism and seeing conditions.
