Author Affiliations +
BESO (Bochum Echelle Spectrograph for OCA) is a high-resolution echelle spectrograph which is built by the Ruhr-Universitaet, Bochum and the Landessternwarte Heidelberg. It will be operated with the 1.5m Hexapod-Telescope at the Observatorio Cerro Armazones (OCA), Chile - the new observatory of the Ruhr-Universitaet and the Universidad Catolica del Norte in Antofagasta. The site at 2800m altitude is located 30 km east of Paranal and provides superb observing conditions. BESO is fiber-coupled to the Hexapod-Telescope, covers a spectral range of 370 to 840nm with a resolution of 48,000. Instrument controls are embedded in the ALMA Common Software environment. The spectrograph is part of a monitoring project that studies the variability of young stars and AGN.
