Windspeed readings taken by satellite at a height of 200 mbar (some 12 km), which have been proposed as an indicator of the observation quality of a site, give excellent results (speed, homogeneity) for our observatories. This confirms the quality of the ORM and OT for Adaptive Optics (OA). The figures are given beneath the photograph.
