Abstract
During its first year of shared-risk observations, the PALAO/PHARO adaptive optics system has been employed to obtain near-infrared R approximately 1000 spectra of solar system targets at spectroscopic slit widths of 0.5 and 0.1 arcsec, and corresponding spatial resolution along the slit as fine as 0.08 arcsec. Phenomena undergoing initial investigation include condensate formation in the atmospheres of Neptune, and the Saturnian moon, Titan. We present the results of this AO spectroscopy campaign and discuss AO specific considerations in the reduction and interpretation of this data.
