Author Affiliations +
The University of Hawaii adaptive optics program has recently moved its 36 actuators system, named 'Hokupa'a 36', to the Gemini North Telescope. First light for Hokupa'a 36 was in time for the dedication of this telescope during June 1999 and most of the images presented were taken with this adaptive optics system. This paper will cover the modifications to the CFHT, Hokupa'a 36 system that were necessary to accommodate the larger 8 meter aperture of the Gemini Telescope. Performance at the telescope has now been measured and compares favorably with that predicted.
