Abstract
We describe the general principles behind a polychromatic adaptive optics prograff astronomy which was started at NOAO recently. In this program the atmospheric wavef distortions are measured at visible wavelengths (700nm) using an astronomical object vicinity of the infrared object of interest. The resulting wavefront corrections ar applied to an infrared imaging system which utilizes a two-dimensional detector arra
