Abstract
We have recently commissioned an active-optics upgrade for Kitt Peak National Observatory's 4 m Mayall telescope. The active-optics upgrade project is based largely on the CTIO 4 m upgrade and consists of three principle subsystems: (1) the 4 m Active Primary Support, (2) secondary mirror articulation and (3) a dedicated wavefront sensing system.
