So far, successful delivery of the Active mirror module for SPHERE. The picture is showing the installation of the Active-TM3, carefully placed by the System engineer (K. Dohlen).

So far, successful delivery of the SPHERE Active mirror module. The new motorized active mirror has been installed at the core of the instrument and alignments are on going, as well as calibrations. The team here is composed of Kjetil Dohlen (SPHERE system Engineer), Anne Costille (SPHERE CPI System engineer), my self, and GĂ©rard Zins working on the software part, crucial to make the system work. Lets keep the finger crossed until everything will be fine tuned, before the technical night on Monday 25th.

This realization is a concrete on-sky application of the work done in the frame of the ANR OASIX. All the team is proud of this front-line achievement.
