developed out of a need to solve a problem. [...] Key Method The panels had an array of holes that would allow pencils of rays from stars to be traced through the telescope system. A photographic plate was placed inside and outside of focus, with a sufficient separation, so the pencil of rays would be separated from each other. Each hole in the panel would produce its own blurry image of the star. By taking two images a known distance apart and measuring the centroid of the images, one can trace the rays…Expand

Bringing the Visible Universe into Focus with Robo-AO
TLDR
The Robo-AO laser adaptive optics system employs a 10-W ultraviolet laser focused at a distance of 10 km to generate a laser guide star to create an artificial reference of known shape, also known as a 'laser guide star'. Expand
