27 June 2006 Multi-conjugate solar adaptive optics with the VTT and GREGOR
Author Affiliations +
After the successful demonstration of the solar multi-conjugate adaptive optics (MCAO) system at the German 70cm Vacuum Tower Telescope (VTT), Observatorio del Teide, Tenerife, in the last years, we are continuing the development of the system as a testbed for the future MCAO of the 150cm GREGOR solar telescope. We describe an improved reconstruction scheme that increases the number of corrected off-axis degrees of freedom and will be tested at the VTT in September 2006. We present a modified optical setup of the GREGOR MCAO that has the advantage of being adjustable to a wide height range of the turbulence.
