Abstract

We present what we believe to be the first results that obtained with the recursive least square zonal slope predictor working on an open-loop liquid-crystal adaptive optics system operating on astronomical implementation at visible and near infrared wavelength on a 1.23 m telescope. The system produces substantially better results than a direct open-loop correction based on previous measurement. A 27% relative gain in full-width at half-maximum and 30% relative gain in Strehl ratio are obtained.
