Stobie, H. Dalgarno, J. Skvarc, “Status update of the CANARY on-sky MOAO demonstrator,” Proc. SPIE 7736, Adaptive Optics Systems II, 77360P (July 27, 2010).
Abstract: The CANARY on-sky MOAO demonstrator is being integrated in the laboratory and a status update about its various components is presented here. We also discuss the alignment and calibration procedures used to improve system performance and overall stability. CANARY will be commissioned at the William Herschel Telescope at the end of September 2010.
