Paper Abstract

This paper describes a low cost adaptive optics (AO) instrument that is being built for the f/31 focus of the UH 2.2m telescope. While operating within the low cost constraint, we have tried to maximize the flexibility and usefulness of the instrument, and minimize the impact of the necessary performance compromises. We have used off-the-shelf optical and electronic components wherever possible, and have emphasized simplicity of design throughout the instrument. The UH prototype AO system, on which the 2.2m AO system is based, is described elsewhere, thus the principles of operation of the UH 2.2m instrument will not be described in detail here.
