Abstract

The description of an adaptive optics (AO) system with no wavefront sensor to correct primary aberrations is presented. This system is based on closed loop software that iteratively analyzes a point source target image on the instrument focal plane and suitably modifies the AO device. The performed tests with a pull-only deformable mirror (DM) have shown that the system works very well, reaching an optimal focusing condition in a few seconds using standard components. Such a system can be conveniently applied in all the fields in which a not very fast optical adaptation is acceptable.
