Paper Abstract

Tracking through a turbulent atmosphere involves many challenges. In the pursuit of better tracking techniques Gemini, a dual tracker was developed. Intended as a research too, Gemini can be used to characterize anisoplanatism, wind, and other atmospheric effects on a frame by frame basis. In addition, one tracker can be converted to a pupil plane or wavefront sensor.
