We present Keck diffraction-limited H-band photometry of a z ∼ 1.3 Type Ia supernova (SN) candidate, first identified in a Hubble Space Telescope search for SNe in massive high-redshift galaxy clusters. The adaptive optics (AO) data were obtained with the Laser Guide Star facility during four observing runs from 2005 September to November. In the analysis of data from the observing run nearest to maximum SN brightness, the SN was found to have a magnitude H = 23.9 ± 0.14 (Vega). We present the… 

MORPHOLOGIES OF HIGH-REDSHIFT, DUST-OBSCURED GALAXIES FROM KECK LASER GUIDE STAR ADAPTIVE OPTICS

Spitzer MIPS images in the Boötes field of the NOAO Deep Wide-Field Survey have revealed a class of extremely dust-obscured galaxy (DOG) at z ∼ 2. The DOGs are defined by very red optical to
