Historically, the spots produced by a Shack-Hartmann wavefront sensor are expected to stay in a region immediately behind their respective lenslets. Valuable sensitivity and dynamic range can be recovered if the spots are allowed to wander. A new algorithm is presented for resolving this issue for a hex-packed lenslet geometry.
