Paper Abstract

Subaru AO a 36 element Curvature Sensor was developed for the 8.2m Subaru Telescope operated by the National Astronomical Observatory of Japan. The system is already over one year on sky and now offered for open use observation. During the time from first light to open use we did major changes in software to operate the instrument more easy and efficient and also improved the performance by tuning the control loop. We will discuss the software model and show what we learned and how we managed the crucial points of this implementation. After this we will have a look at how we can improve the system further.
