Things are winding down here. Today we did a big set of readout noise measurements on both of our cameras. We did a preliminary set a few days ago to make sure shipping went okay, but now that we are … Continue reading
Hi all! So at the end all the measurements are done… First we verified the settling time of the ASM for a reduced set of modes. Here there are some examples of the step responses (the slowest mode and the … Continue reading
Tip for users of pyramid wavefront sensors: you are not very sensitive to focus with a large modulation amplitude. For MagAO in particular, you have to get amplitude down to ~.1 milliradians before you really have any z-stage resolution. Tip … Continue reading
