Abstract

It is shown that low-order wavefront compensation can significantly improve astronomical images over most of the sky. A novel approach to wavefront sensing and compensation is described. It is optimized for low-order correction and high efficiency. Computer-simulation results show it can achieve the desired performance, and preliminary laboratory tests demonstrate its feasibility.
