Paper Abstract

An overview of the Wavefront Control Experiment (WCE) adaptive optics system is presented. We discuss our initial tests of the system and illustrate adaptive correction capability of the system using its internal star source simulator. Future laboratory tests are planned prior to adapting the system to a coude feed of a 41' reflecting telescope at Yerkes Observatory where atmospheric compensation with astronomical sources will be investigated.
