Paper Abstract

We present an extension of adaptive optics sky coverage calculations to include spectrometer slit power coupling. As an example, we show several slit coupling sky coverage calculations for the Gemini-North telescope. Our calculations quantify the effect on sky coverage of previous work, where we showed Strehl is not in general a good predictor of slit coupling, and provide an example of the utility of instrument-specific calculations.
