9 January 1984 Very High Resolution Camera For The 3.6m On Mauna Kea
Author Affiliations +
Reports from Mauna Kea observers and measurements of imagery, including the CFHT "trail plates" have strengthened the necessity for instrumentation which is capable of optimizing superb seeing conditions. Motivated by such experiences, a Very High Resolution (VHR) Camera has been constructed at CFHT. The principles of operation and preliminary results obtained will be discussed. This first experiment has pointed the way to achievable improvements in resolution. Plans for upgrading the device are now in progress.
