Paper Abstract

Subaru adaptive optics is a system of curvature wavefront sensor coupled with bimorph type deformable mirror. The number of element for each component is 36. The system is attached on the Cassegrain focus of the telescope. The open-use observation of the AO system has been started from April of 2002. In this paper, we report experiences obtained from Subaru adaptive optics system for two years of open-use operation. These experiences will be of value for development of future AO systems.
