Over the last decade, the sigma-Orionis cluster has been a prime location for the study of young very low mass stars, substellar and isolated planetary mass objects and the determination of the initial mass function. To extend previous studies of this association to its core, we searched for ultracool members and new multiple systems within the 1.5'x1.5' central region of the cluster. We obtained deep multi-conjugate adaptive optics (MCAO) images of the core of the sigma-Orionis cluster with the prototype MCAO facility MAD at the VLT using the H and Ks filters. These images allow us to detect companions fainter by DeltaH∼5mag as close as 0.2" on a typical source with H=14.5mag. These images were complemented by archival SofI Ks-band images and Spitzer IRAC and MIPS mid-infrared images. Description: MAD is a prototype instrument performing wide field-of-view, real-time correction for atmospheric turbulence. MAD was built by the European Southern Observatory (ESO) with the contribution of two external consortia to prove the feasibility of MCAO on the sky in the framework of the 2nd generation VLT instrumentation and of the European Extremely Large Telescope. During the on-sky demonstration run of MAD held in November 2007, a region of 1.5'x1.5' centered on the sigma-Orionis cluster was observed in the H and Ks filters. File Summary:

Note (1): The error on the photometry is dominated by the zeropoint uncertainty (0.19mag). Note (2): The 2MASS and Mayrit 2008, Cat. J/A+A/478/667 nearest matches within 5" are indicated. Because of the higher spatial resolution of the SofI image compared to these two catalogs, the same 2MASS or Mayrit source is sometimes associated to several SofI sources.
