Abstract
We describe the motivations for building low-cost deformable mirrors constructed with the needs of astronomers in mind. We detail the design and manufacture of a 59 actuator continuous faceplate deformable mirror and its associated driving electronics and give a summary of the initial test results of this mirror.
