23 June 2006 GREGOR AO as a tool for telescope commissioning
Author Affiliations +
The new German solar 1.5 m telescope (GREGOR) will be equipped with an adaptive optic system. GREGOR has a relatively complicated optical scheme with small tolerances. We therefore have to expect certain aberrations due to misalignments and mechanical/optical imperfections. This is why the AO will play an important role as an auxiliary tool for telescope alignment from the very beginning of the commissioning phase. The paper will cover the alignment strategies taking advantage of the AO system.
