Moon commissioning image

Mosaic 1.0 is now Mosaic 1.1!

 

The Mosaic 1 imager was upgraded during the summer of 2010 and recommisioned in the fall of 2010. The science grade SITE CCDs were replaced with more sensitive E2V CCDs and the well used ARCON controllers were replaced with MONSOON controllers. An updated version of the manual can be found below, as can a quick reference page on these e2v CCDs. Please contact Heidi Schweiker for information you need about the new upgraded Mosaic 1.1 that you are not yet able to find on these pages. The Mosaic 1.1 upgrade project web pages contain additional information about the upgrade project and the 1.1 version of the instrument. 

Information about the previous version of Mosaic, Mosaic 1.0, can be found via the older web pages.
