Abstract

SimCADO is the instrument data simulation software for the E-ELT's near- infrared wide-field imaging camera - MICADO. Written in Python, SimCADO allows the user to simulate possible future observations of astronomical objects with the 39m European Extremely Large Telescope (E-ELT). In these proceedings we present a brief introduction into how to use SimCADO.
