Astrometric performance of the Gemini multiconjugate adaptive optics system in crowded fields

Neichel, Benoit; Lu, Jessica; Rigaut, Francois; Ammons, S Mark; Carrasco, Eleazar R.; Lassalle, Emmanuel


The Gemini multiconjugate adaptive optics system (GeMS) is a facility instrument for the Gemini South telescope. It delivers uniform, near-diffraction-limited image quality at nearinfrared wavelengths over a 2 arcmin field of view. Together with the Gemini South Adaptive Optics Imager (GSAOI), a near-infrared wide-field camera, GeMS/GSAOI's combination of high spatial resolution and a large field of view will make it a premier facility for precision astrometry. Potential astrometric science...[Show more]
