Adaptive Optics Guide Stars
- Guide Star Finder: A Web tool aimed at searching for suitable adaptive optics guide stars, either for single objects as for a list of observing targets.
The tool is based on the USNO-SA2.0 catalogue. Work is in progress to use USNO-B catalogue as an option. The tool also offers the possibility to choose the selection criteria from a short list of different strategies.
