We outline two separate projects which highlight the power of adaptive optics (AO) to aid planetary research. The first project utilized AO to discover a moon around asteroid 45 Eugenia by use of the PUEO AO facility at CFHT. We also utilized AO to resolve the Pluto-Charon system by producing 0.15' FWHM images. We used the University of Hawaii AO system (Roddier et al. 1991) at CFHT to obtain deep (20 min) narrow band images in and out of the molecular bands of water and methane ices.

The use of adaptive optics to correct the effects of seeing is rapidly becoming a standard technique in astronomical observing and is fundamental to current plans for extremely large telescopes.
