Paper Abstract

First order adaptive optics algorithms have been developed for the ATMOS high speed imaging system. Design considerations and implementation techniques are discussed along with performance characteristics measured in the laboratory. Preliminary image motion and power spectral density (PSD) results of tip-tilt image correction on the KPNO 2.1 meter telescope equipped with a 'fast guider' secondary are presented. Implications for infrared applications are also discussed.
