Latest GeMS/GSAOI commissioning and SV run completed

The latest commissioning and system verification (SV) run for the Gemini Multi-Conjugate Adaptive Optics System (GeMS) with the Gemini South Adaptive Optics Imager (GSAOI) ended on Saturday, February 2.  During this run, the team completed six SV programs and made good progress on another three.  In optimal seeing, the first diffraction ring has been visible on point sources, and even in poor seeing, the AO correction is excellent. The next GeMS/GSAOI run is scheduled to start in late February.
