Adaptive Optics (AO)

The LBT will provide a deformable secondary mirror for AO observations. For this reason the ETC can handle both a seeing-limited PSF and a diffraction-limited PSF (1.2.3). If the loop is closed, different Strehl ratios are possible. This depends on the environmental conditions (seeing, ...). Therefore the value of this parameter is continously changeable.
