The European Solar Telescope was one of the sponsors of the conference on Adaptive Optics for Extremely Large Telescopes that took place in Québec (Canada) on June 9-14, 2019.
Luzma Montoya, from the Instituto de Astrofísica de Canarias (Spain) delivered a keynote presentation on the progress along the EST MCAO roadmap. A poster on the real time MCAO demonstrator for the EST was also on display at the event. Promotional EST material was brought to the venue.
Solar adaptive optics was one of the topics covered in the meeting, including daytime atmosphere characterization, extended source wavefront sensing and alternative sensing methods, and image quality parameters.
