Computer simulation of the Grantecan on La Palma. The island is one of the best locations for astronomic observations.
High availability

Grantecan will minimize its downtime by means of

  • automatic calibration simultaneously with the astronomical observation of the segmented primary mirror,
  • single secondary mirrors for observations in the visible and IR range,
  • tertiary mirrors which can be swiveled and rotated to guide the light bundle to the telescope’s various instruments,
  • a number of focal stations (7) for the permanent reception of the different astronomical instruments.
