The Gran Telescopio Canarias (GTC) is a 10.4 m reflecting telescope located at the Roque de los Muchachos Observatory on the island of La Palma, Spain.
MEGARA offers two different observing modes to the community, the Large Compact Bundle (LCB) mode, and a Multi-Object Spectroscopy (MOS) mode.
FRIDA is a second generation infrared instrument of the GRAN TELESCOPIO CANARIAS (GTC).
It will be the first GTC instrument to make use of the Adaptive Telescope Optics System (GTC-AO) and is designed to reach the diffraction limit.
The Extremely Large Telescope (ELT) is an astronomical observatory and the world’s largest optical/near-infraredextremely large telescope now under construction.
MOSAIC will have three operating modes: a high multiplex mode (HMM) covering the visible and near-infrared domain; a high definition mode (HDM) that will provide spatially resolved observations in the near-infrared; and a multi light bucket integral field mode for the Inter-Galactic Medium mode (IGM).
Advanced instrumentación is developed in this laboratory.
We develop small instruments to measure sky brightness and monitor light polution
