MCAO near-IR photometry of the globular cluster NGC 6388: MAD observations in crowded fields
Context. Deep photometry of crowded fields, such as Galactic globular clusters, is severely limited by the resolution of ground-based telescopes. On the other hand, the Hubble Space Telescope does not have the near-infrared (NIR) filters needed to allow large color baselines. Aims. In this work we demonstrate how ground based observations can reach the required resolution when using Multi-Conjugated Adaptive Optic (MCAO) devices in the NIR, such as the experimental infrared camera (MAD)...[Show more]
