Paper Abstract

A 19-segment adaptive mirror system for use in solar astronomy has been developed and operated on the Sacramento Peak Tower Telescope. The system has proven itself to be capable of improving the quality of an image, at times achieving 1/3 arcsecond resolution in 1-3 arcsecond seeing conditions.
