摘要

MagAO is the adaptive-secondary AO system on the 6.5-m Magellan Clay telescope. With a high actuator density and a sensitive pyramid WFS, MagAO achieves down to ~130 nm rms WFE on bright guide stars in median seeing conditions (0.7" V band) at Las Campanas Observatory in Chile. MagAO's infrared camera, Clio2, has a comprehensive suite of narrow and broad band filters that allow direct imaging of faint companions from 1-5 μm. We present first-light results from Clio2, including images of exoplanetary system β Pictoris. High-contrast imaging is an important goal of AO for ELTs, and results from MagAO/Clio2 are the next step along that path - particularly true for the GMT which is located very close to the Magellan site.
