Fig. A.1


Simulated coronagraphic ELT/HARMONI image at 2.0 μm for an exposure of 60 s with the SP1 apodizer. The central star is attenuated by the focal plane mask, which is asymmetric to take the atmospheric dispersion into account. The remaining field of view is plagued by diffracted starlight. The white line marks the adaptive optics corrected area, the region where the speckle intensity is minimized. The intensity scale is linear.
