The Gemini-North Multiobject Spectrograph integration, test and commissioning

Abstract:

The first of two Gemini Multi Object Spectrographs (GMOS) has recently begun operation at the Gemini-North 8m telescope. In this presentation we give an overview of the instrument and describe the overall performance of GMOS-North both in the laboratory during integration, and at the telescope during commissioning. We. describe the development process which led to meeting the demanding reliability and performance requirements on flexure, throughput and image quality. We then show examples of ...
