Abstract:

The Gold Camera is the CCD spectrometer on the Gold Spectrograph at the Kitt Peak 2.1-meter telescope. The system uses a Ford 3Kx1K CCD with 15 micron pixels. Using a set of thirteen reflective gratings, it provides resolutions ranging from 1-15 Angstroms and spectral coverage from about 3300Å to 1-micron. The maximum spatial coverage is 5.1 arc-minutes at a scale of 0.78 "/pixel.
