Abstract
The Giant Magellan Telescope Multi-object Astronomical and Cosmological Spectrograph (GMACS) is a first light instrument for the Giant Magellan Telescope (GMT). It will provide multi-object spectroscopy in wide wavelength coverage and wide field of view. The scientific objectives include exoplanet atmospheres, star formation and chemical evolution studies, galaxy assembly histories, and intergalactic medium tomography. The optical layouts are optimized to have high throughput in the natural seeing limit. In this presentation, we report the current status of the instrument development.
