Abstract
The Lockheed Missiles and Space Co. (LMSC) has developed a 57-actuator segmented adaptive optics (AO) system to compensate for atmospheric turbulence encountered in ground- based solar astronomy. While working with the National Solar Observatory (NSO), this system has been successfully tested in several observing runs on the Tower Telescope at Sacramento Peak. This paper gives a brief description of the AO system with emphasis on recent developments. Images from a recent observing run with the AO system are also presented.
