Abstract
We describe the science goals, optical and mechanical design, software control, data reduction and current status of a new aperture masking instrument for meter class telescopes. AMASING (Aperture Masking And Speckle ImagiNG) was designed to be a flexible Nasmyth mounted platform for high resolution astronomy at optical wavelengths. The instrument is self guiding and includes cameras for target acquisition and guiding, masked pupil viewing and high frame rate data collection.
