A feedforward vibration cancellation system can be used to compensate for fast wind-induced telescope vibrations. Crucial is the position reconstructors ability to provide the compensation mirror with an accurate online estimate of the vibrational displacement. The authors have developed and presented a position reconstructor based on adaptive resonators. However, network data transmission of the acceleration signals introduces a time delay into the measurement chain. Any feedforward compensation setup can only function well if a delay-free estimate of the disturbance signal is provided. Three delay-compensating extensions of the developed position reconstructor are presented and analyzed.
