Abstract
A conceptual design for the WHT Natural Guide Star Adaptive Optics system, now called NAOMI (Nasmyth Adaptive Optics for Multi-purpose Instrumentation) was presented at the 1995 SPIE meeting1. Although the general principle of using off-axis paraboloidal mirrors (OAP) as a collimator- camera combination, with a deformable mirror located between them in the collimated beam, remains the same many features of the design have been improved.
