Stanimir Metchev's Palomar and Keck Adaptive Optics Page

Here I have collected data related to the performance of PHARO (the near-IR camera behind the Palomar AO system), and NIRC2 (the near-IR camera behind the Keck II AO system).

PHARO Linearity

PHARO Plate Scale and Orientation (25mas/pix Camera)

PHARO Coronagraph Extinction

PHARO Calibration Frames (to be added later)


NIRC2 Linearity

NIRC2 Plate Scale and Orientation (Wide Camera)

NIRC2 Coronagraph Extinction


NIRC2 Calibration Frames (not added yet)
