This page will be updated periodically with news related to both instruments, including updates on commissioning, availability and other information of interest to prospective observers.

The spectrographs are shown on their handling carts in the up-looking position, which is the same way they will mount in the cass cages of the 4-m telescopes using an adapter that is not shown. The dewars install on the bottom of the instruments. Various covers are not yet installed in these photos.
