Paper Abstract

AdOpt@TNG is the Adaptive Optics module for the Italian “Telescopio Nazionale Galileo" (TNG), a 4m? class telescope that will have its first light in late 1997. This module incorporates a number of peculiar features such as the adoption of an electro-magnetically driven tip-tilt mirror, a continuously adjustable offset between the reference and the scientific objects (in a way to deal, for instance, with moving references, like asteroids, or targets, like comets), a built-in speckle camera with an on-line autocorrelator and others. The speckle camera has been tested at the 1.82m telescope of the Astronomical Observatory of Asiago, a short account of the results obtained is given. Most of the elements of the AdOpt@TNG module have been manufactured and tested. The up-to-date status report of the module is briefly given.
