AMBER has been commissionned with pair and triplet of 8m telescopes
Saturday 5 June 2004, by Fabien Malbet


During the first Commissionning Run, AMBER has been tested successively with two siderostats, then with two 8m telescopes equipped with the adaptive optics MACAO and finally with three 8m telescopes without adaptive optics.

First fringes on 51 Hya with 2 UTs First fringes on 70 Aql with three telescopes (we can distinguish two set of fringes)
