Magellan 1 - Baade Telescope - Instruments f/11

 

The Inamori Magellan Areal Camera and Spectrograph (IMACS) is a very versatile wide-field imager and multi-object spectrograph.

A wide field near-infrared camera undergoing commissioning at Baade NASE platform.

The FIRE (Folded port InfraRed Echellette) spectrograph is a moderate resolution near-infrared echellette.

The MagE (Magellan Echellette) Spectrograph is a moderate-resolution optical echellette.

    The Magellan Inamori Kyocera Echelle (MIKE) is a high-throughput double echelle spectrograph.

     

    • LDSS3 - Specs    Note: detector upgraded to LDSS3-C [field reduced by ~100" in spatial dimension 57" and 40" on the left and right side respectively]

    The Low Dispersion Survey Spectrograph (LDSS-3) is a high efficiency, wide-field multislit spectrograph.

     

    Magellan II - Clay Telescope - Instruments f/5

     

    Megacam is a large mosaic CCD camera with a 24' x 24' field-of-view. The camera uses 36 2048 x 4608 pixel CCDs with a scale of 0.08"/pixel. Megacam is operated in campaign mode at the f/5 CASS focus.
