The Crab Nebula was discovered as the first very-high-energy gamma-ray source by the Whipple Observatory in 1989. Thirty years after its discovery it is still the reference source and the standard candle for Imaging Atmospheric Cherenkov Telescopes (IACTs). Its spectrum has been measured from the cm radio band to energies up to tens of TeV. Some studies reported a possible but still debated cut-off in its spectrum at few tens of TeV.
The MAGIC collaboration is currently investigating the spectrum of the Crab Nebula by using the Very Large Zenith Angle observation technique. The latter provides a significantly increased collection area for energies above 10 TeV. The details of these MAGIC observations will be presented.
