Catch MagAO at SPIE Astronomical Telescopes & Instrumentation in Montreal

Hello, MagAO fans. Are you attending the SPIE Astronomical Telescopes & Instrumentation conference in Montreal next week (starting tomorrow)? We would love to see you at one of our talks or posters to hear more about MagAO! Look for myself, Jared, or Laird — we’ll be at the conference all week.

This is the title slide of my talk about the status and on-sky performance of MagAO. The talk is quite early, third of the entire conference. It’s Sunday morning at 9:45am in the first AO session, “Session 1: Status of Current AO Instrument Projects I”.
Kate’s poster about “New frontiers in circumstellar science with MagAO’s visible light simultaneous differential imaging mode” (Paper 9148-144) will have a viewing Monday from 5:30 PM – 7:00 PM in “Astronomy with AO”.
Laird’s talk about “Into the blue: AO science in the visible” is at 4:05pm on Wednesday in “Session 14: Astronomy with AO II”
This is the title slide of Jared’s talk about direct imaging of exoplanets in the habitable zone with AO. It is on Thursday at 3:35pm in “Session 17: Extreme AO II”.
