MICADO is the wide-field imaging camera selected for first-light of the E-ELT. It should be coupled to the MCAO module MAORY. In addition to this wide-field correction, the MICADO team has worked on a SCAO system to provide on-axis AO correction during the first years of MICADO operation.

We will present the results of the study of this SCAO system, from the opto-mechanical point of view as well as from the AO performance point of view
