OPTICAL INSTRUMENTATION

Abstract

Hardware components were created for the Large Solar Vacuum Telescope (LSVT) of the Institute of Solar-Terrestrial Physics, Siberian Branch, Russian Academy of Sciences, in 2017 for development of techniques for recording and correcting distortions of optical radiation propagating through a turbulent air layer; a three-cascade image correction system was installed; software has been developed for the statistical analysis of the quality of images formed in LSVT and for the joint operation of a wavefront sensor, an image quality analyzer, and an astronomical instrument—a filter-recorder.

Keywords:

astronomical telescope image turbulence wavefront sensor adaptive correction
