Paper Abstract

The construction and integration of the Keck AO system presented many interesting challenges, stemming from the program's unique scientific objectives and the size and shape of the Keck telescope primary mirror. In this paper, we will discuss several technical problems encountered during the design, construction, integration, and commissioning of the Keck AO system, and describe the solutions that have been implemented in the AO system.
