NOAO Newsletter - SCOPE - March 1999 - Number 57


CTIO Instruments Available

This lists common user instruments available. The last column gives volume number of Newsletters containing relevant articles. Many optical instruments show a "generic" CCD, e.g., "Tek 2K." The most recent summary of specific CCD characteristics is in NOAO Newsletter 45; see also 51, 50, and 33. Note the availability of OSIRIS for this coming semester.
