⭐?⭐ First On-sky results of our C-BLUE One camera shared by the National Research Council Canada! ⭐?⭐

On October 18, 2022, the NRC’s Herzberg Astronomy and Astrophysics Research Centre has shared the first results of their new Adaptive Optics system on the 1.2 meter McKellar Telescope in British Columbia. The project called REVOLT (Research, Experiment and Validation of Adaptive Optics with a Legacy Telescope) uses advanced cameras, high-speed computers and bendable mirrors in order to correct the effects of atmospheric turbulence.

The camera chosen by NRC for the REVOLT experiment is a C-BLUE One 1.7 MP.
Combined to a Shack-Hartmann analyser and used in windowing mode (352 x 352 pixels), the camera is able to run at 1000 frames per second.

C-BLUE One is a high speed low noise global shutter CMOS camera, originally developped for the next generation of laser assisted adaptive optics systems on the ELTs (20-40m).
Yet, the REVOLT experiment is the first demonstrator of such systems on a smaller telescope.

Thanks a lot to all the team at NRC for sharing !
