Paper Abstract

This paper is a presentation of the Come-On-Plus adaptive optics system, based on the Come-On prototype. Come-On-PIus will be set up in 1992 on the ESO 3.6 m telescope in La Silla (Chile). It is an upgrade of the Come-On instrument, with a 52 actuator deformable mirror, and 30 Hz correction bandwidth. But the main improvement concerns the wavefront sensing, designed in this instrument for astronomical applications, with a high detectivity wavefront sensor and a specific mirror control algorithm. This system is planned for routine astronomical observing as well as providing design parameters for the adaptive optics system of the ESO Very Large Telescope (VLT).
