Abstract
The Multi-Object Broadband Imaging Echellette (MOBIE) is the seeing-limited, wide-field multi-object optical imaging spectrograph planned for first-light operation on the Thirty Meter Telescope (TMT). Following the completion of a feasibility study and requirements review in December 2008, the MOBIE instrument project, based at the University of California Observatories (UCO) on the UC Santa Cruz campus, entered a conceptual design phase. In this paper, we describe the latest developments in the instrument optical design, and progress in the conceptual design of the optomechanical and mechanical elements for the instrument.
