We present the improvement of science throughput of 1m class telescopes that can be obtained using COTS adaptive optics. It is based on a new architecture of adaptive optics system using a new kind of magnetic deformable mirrors, a highly sensitive EMCCD wavefront sensor and a novel real time architecture called ACE and working on a standard workstation. It will be shown the dramatically increase of performances that can be achieved using small adaptive optics (typically 8x8 actuators) with 1m to 2m class telescopes and in particularly, we will focus our presentation of the improvement of the science throughput thanks to this simple and efficient A.O. system
