dc.description.abstract Using an optical vortex coronagraph and simple adaptive optics techniques, we have made the first convincing demonstration of an optical vortex coronagraph that is coupled to a star gazing telescope. We suppressed by 97% the primary star of a resolvable binary system, Cor Caroli. The stars had an angular separation of 1.9(lambda)/D at our imaging camera. The secondary star suffered no suppression from the vortex lens. en_US
