Abstract
The Naval Observatory Flagstaff Station 1-m telescope is evaluated for the addition of adaptive optics capabilities to its instrumentation suite. Zernike decomposition of the optical system based on phase diversity measurements shows that the static optical aberrations are small enough that they will not degrade the performance of the deformable optical element. The analysis makes use of annular pupil Zernike polynomial reconstruction of the wavefront to accommodate the large obscuration in this telescope and compares this with the results from using filled circular Zernike polynomials.
