CitationYeşilyaprak, C. & Keskin, O. (2020). Eastern Anatolia Observatory (DAG): The status in 2020. Paper presented at the Proceedings of SPIE - The International Society for Optical Engineering, 11445, doi:10.1117/12.2560942
East Anatolian Observatory's DAG telescope, with its 4m diameter primary mirror and VIS/IR observation capability, will be located on the Konakll-Karaya summit at an altitude of 3170 m, near the city of Erzurum, Turkey. Containing both active optics (aO) and adaptive optics (AO) systems, the first light for DAG is expected for the last quarter of 2021. DAG will be equipped with an in-flange derotator - KORAY (K-mirror Optical relAY) that will direct the light to the seeing limited Nasmyth platform containing TROIA (TuRkish adaptive Optics system for Infrared Astronomy). DAG first generation instruments will consist in a 30"FoV near-infrared (NIR) diffraction limited camera and a stellar coronagraph. In his paper, status updates from DAG telescope will be presented in terms of; (i) DAG site, (ii) Site infrastructure, (iii) current status of the observatory building, (iv) DAG optics, (v) current status of the telescope, (vi) current status of enclosure, (vi) current progress of the astronomical instruments, and (viii) status of the Optomechatronics Research Laboratory - OPAL.
