Paper Abstract

We have constructed and integrated a 61-element adaptive optics system at the 1.2m telescope of Yunnan Observatory in China. It provides compensated images in visible wavelengths and consists of a tip-tilt mirror, a 61 actuator deformable mirror, a visible Hartmann-Shack wavefront sensor with gated, a tip-tilt sensor, and controller. This paper will present some images taken with this adaptive optics system and describe the performance measured at the telescope.
