Paper Abstract

Global-Multi Conjugate Adaptive Optics (GMCAO) can be a reliable approach for the new generation of Extremely Large Telescopes (ELTs) to address the issue of the sky coverage. It is based on the idea of using the largest possible technical field-of-view, to maximize the chance to find suitable reference stars. To prove that such innovative concept is robust and can be successfully used for studying faint objects, we build mock images of high-z galaxies and analyze them as if they were real and observed with an ELT that benefits of GMCAO. The results we obtained from the analysis of these images claim that this kind of method can be well used for extragalactic deep surveys, a key instrument that next generation telescopes will use to understand the origin and the evolution of galaxies.
