The Wide Field Camera (WFC) is an optical mosaic camera for use at the prime focus (focal ratio f/3.3) of the 2.5m
Isaac Newton Telescope (INT)
The WFC consists of 4 thinned EEV42 2kx4k CCDs. The CCDs have a pixel
size of 13.5 microns corresponding to 0.33 arcsec/pixel on sky. The edge to edge limit
of the mosaic, including the ~0.5 arcmin inter-chip spacing, is 34.2 arcmins.
The cycle time for the whole mosaic is around 42 seconds. A maximum of 6 filters
can be installed in the wheel. Both broadband and Stromgren filter sets are
available, as well as a range of narrowband filters.
The Wide Field Camera is no longer offered after semester 24A. More information is available on the ING instrumentation update
