WHT Prime Focus Spectroscopy Facility


A wide-field multi-object spectroscopy facility is currently under development for the WHT prime focus. Used with the prime-focus corrector and atmospheric dispersion compensator, it consists of a robotic fibre positioner with a choice of two fibre feeds, and an intermediate-dispersion spectrograph mounted on one of the Nasmyth platforms.
