1 July 1990 Design study of a new wide-field AAT prime focus: the 2dF
Author Affiliations +
The 2dF project aims at giving the AAT Prime-focus a 2-deg diameter corrected field of view geared primarily toward multiobject fiber spectroscopy. The combination of the 4-meter aperture of the AAT, a 400-fiber autopositioner and high throughput spectrographs should make the 2dF a powerful facility for statistical spectroscopic studies in the years to come. The design study for the corrector, fiber-positioner and spectrographs is now complete and the main conclusions are reported.
