A unique instrument for the biggest telescope

Positioner System Architecture

Baseline for the full architecture is a stepped tiled focal plane. This is the only configuration which can compensate adequately for the non-telecentricity of the ELT and provide support for all required modes. With 7.4’, and a tile size of 0.5’ (~100mm), we can achieve the 200 multiplex including LGS vignetting (TBD)


REM : this is just a concept representative of the type of tile we envision for MOSAIC.
