Paper Abstract

CCDs having circular rather than rectilinear symmetry offer some advantages for low-order wavefront sensing. A series of imagers having 24 sectors and 12 radial zones (plus frame store) has been developed. Three different output structures have been utilized in order to investigate low-noise operational limits.
