The W.M. Keck Observatory announced that they have completed a $4 million campaign that will aid astronomers in using adaptive optics imaging.
More than $3.7 million was donated by the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation, the W.M. Keck Foundation, and The Bob and Renee Parsons Foundation in order to make improvements to the Keck II Laser Guide Star Adaptive Optics (LGS AO) system. The rest of the funds were made up of individual gifts from the Friends of the Keck Observatory.
