MICADO@EELT will be the workhorse facility for Adaptive Optic assisted
ground-breaking NIR deep high spatial-resolution imaging and
spectroscopy of the next decade. Modern ground-based large telescopes
depend heavily on AO systems to correct for atmospheric
turbulence. The recovery of the intrinsic properties of the observed
sources (position, photometry, morphology) depends critically on the
reconstructed point spread function (PSF). Our Team is actively
working on developing instrument software for the reconstruction of
the PSF of MICADO, independently of the science data, both for single-
and multi-conjugate adaptive optics mode observations using AO
telemetry data. The PSF-Reconstruction software will be able to
generate field-dependent PSF images at the desired wavelength taking
into account both AO and non-AO (e.g. telescope or atmospheric)
input. The PSF-Reconstruction service will support the
state-of-the-art scientific analysis of the MICADO SCAO-MCAO assisted
imaging and spectroscopic data by maximizing the scientific
information that could be extracted from complex but powerful AO data.
