Left: realistic simulation of a SPHERE AO-corrected image in the 600–780 nm band, centered on the star. The dark hole indicates the position and size of an optical fiber that would pick up the planet light to send it to ESPRESSO. The planet is 37 mas away from the star (2.0 λ/D at 750 nm), while the fiber radius is 14 mas. Right: coronagraphic image, limited by the aberrations of the incoming beam (both turbulence residuals and optical defects), assuming an ideal coronagraph. Units on both axes are milli-arcseconds (mas).
