The MAGIC telescopes are 17 m diameter Cherenkov telescopes, located on the Canarian island La Palma (Spain), with an optimal view on the Northern sky. It is nowadays the only ground-based instrument able to measure high-energy γ-rays below 100 GeV. A recent upgrade of the trigger system allows to extend the sensitivity down to 25 GeV, which resulted in the detection of pulsed emission from the Crab pulsar. The construction of the second telescope MAGIC-II has been completed and commissioning… CONTINUE READING
