A spectroscopic Survey Instrument on the Blanco 4-m telescope

In the spirit of Jeffrey Newman’s proposed topic of "A Southern Spectroscopic Survey Instrument", it may be useful to discuss the Blanco telescope as a platform for such an instrument. DECam was actually designed with a view to a possible retrofit for multiplexed spectroscopy, a la DESI, albeit with a smaller field.

Proposed by Tim Abbott (CTIO/NOAO)
