Extensive results from the commissioning phase of PUEO, the adaptive optics instrument adaptor for the Canada–France–Hawaii telescope (CFHT), are presented and discussed. Analyses of more than 750 images recorded with a CCD and a near-IR camera on 16 nights in wavelengths from B to H are used to derive the properties of the compensated wavefront and images(More)
We report here on a series of adaptive optics observations of T Tauri made from Dec. 1993 to Nov. 1997. Observations show an arc-like structure extending toward north and north-west. On the south side a bright tail-like structure extends radially in the south-west direction. Both structures seem to be produced by dust scattering. Close to T Tauri, the south(More)
The discrete sampling of a wave-front using a Shack-Hartmann sensor limits the maximum spatial frequency we can measure and impacts sensitivity to frequencies at the high end of the correction band due to aliasing. Here we present Wiener filters for wave-front reconstruction in the spatial-frequency domain, ideally suited for systems with a high number of(More)
In adaptive optics systems employing laser guide stars, the tip/tilt contribution to the long exposure point spread function must be estim ted separately from the hi h-order tip/tilt removed point spread function because this component is estimated separately from a single or multiple low-order natural guide star wavefront sensors. This paper investigates(More)
We describe a high fidelity simulation method for estimating the sky coverage of multiconjugate adaptive optics systems; this method is based upon the split tomography control architecture, and employs an AO simulation postprocessing technique to evaluate system performance with hundreds of randomly generated natural guide star (NGS) asterisms. A novel(More)
