2.1m Imaging Information
This CCD system is used primarily for applications where good image
sampling (0.3 arcsec/pixel) and deep imaging are crucial but a very
large field size is not. The CCD camera is mounted at the f/8
Cassegrain focus of the 2.1-m.
The size of the unvignetted field is currently 10.4 x 10.4 arcmin
with the Tektronix T2KA 2048 x 2048 pixel CCD.
Guiding is accomplished using a TV on a movable xy stage.
The field size is similar to that of the MiniMo camera on WIYN,
but the median seeing is not as good; marginally sub-arcsecond
images are not uncommon, but certainly cannot be counted upon. On
the other hand, there is considerably more time available at the
2.1-m than at WIYN.
