11 July 2008 Hyper Suprime-Cam: autoguider and Shack-Hartmann systems
Author Affiliations +
We present methodology of the autoguider (AG) and Shack-Hartmann (SH) sensing systems which will be used for a wide-field camera, Hyper Suprime-Cam (HSC), on the prime focus of the Subaru 8.2-m telescope. For both systems, stellar images are formed on the HSC science CCDs. Although light from AG stars must pass through bandpass filters, we can obtain enough photons for AG stars brighter than mAB < 14 mag in any bandpass filter assumed in order to achieve accurate autoguiding. Spatial number density of such bright stars from the SDSS database requires an area of about two 2k×4k CCDs for AG stars. The optics of SH system except for the imaging CCDs is located within the HSC filter unit.
