CorMASS+Magellan
  • CorMASS
    • Instrument team = John Wilson, Mike Skrutskie (UVa)
    • Capabilities = 0.8-2.5 m, cross-dispersed, R=300, f/9
    • Previous telescopes = Palomar 60”, VATT, APO 3.5 m
    • On Magellan = 0.4x3” slit, SN=10 for K=18 in 1 hour
    • Ideal for followup of candidate brown dwarfs

    • Ideal for followup of candidate brown dwarfs
  • Observing run on Magellan
    • ~8 nights in February or March 2005
    • Queue observing for IRAC targets and other CfA proposed work
    • Harvard-only run now, but will advertise to partners up approval
