Description

The study of resolved stellar populations in nearby galaxies outside of the Local Group has come within reach with the new generation of extremely large telescopes, featuring primary mirror diameters on the order of 30 meters. ELT, the European Extremely Large Telescope, is currently being built at the Armazones site in the Atacama desert of Chile. From the instrumentation suite for the ELT, the multi-object spectrograph ELT-MOS stands out with the capability of combining the large light collecting power with adaptive optics over the entire field-of-view of the ELT, thus becoming the perfect instrument to study the spectra of resolved stars in galaxies beyond the Milky Way and the Local Group. With an emphasis of the stellar science case, the instrument at the stage of the completed Phase-A study will be presented and discussed, in particular with a focus on the synergy potential with the MICADO imager at the ELT, and the MUSE IFU at the VLT.
