16 November 1982 Multi-Aperture Spectroscopy At Kitt Peak
Author Affiliations +
Simultaneous observation of several astronomical sources can be an effective way to increase the efficiency of telescope use. A description of the scheme currently in use at Kitt Peak, employing multiple entrance apertures to spectrographs and digital array detectors, is presented. Typical uses include surveying fields of faint objects for peculiar sources, and deriving radial velocities and/or spectrophotometry of stars or galaxies in clusters.
