Abstract

The Natural Guide Star Adaptive Optics (NGS AO) system for the MMT Observatory is currently the only AO system in the world that uses a deformable secondary mirror to provide wavefront correction. This approach has unique advantages in terms of optical simplicity, high throughput and low emissivity. Here we present selected scientific results from the past year and a half of operation. Research with the AO system ranges from small scale structure around planetary nebulae, low mass stellar systems in the near IR, through to nulling interferometry in the mid infra-red.
