Abstract
The NIRI for the Gemini North telescope is now undergoing acceptance testing. NIRI is the main near-IR facility camera on the Gemini North telescope and is designed to fully exploit the excellent characteristics of the site and the expected high performance o the telescope. NIRI offers 3 different pixel scales for wide-field, tip-tilt corrected and diffraction-limited imaging. It is equipped with a pupil imaging system to evaluate the telescope emissivity and to optimize the alignment of the instrument with the telescope. NIRI has an IR wavefront sensor so that tip-tilt and focus corrections can be obtained even in dark cloud regions or during daytime observing.
