TAURUS Fabry-Perot Interferometer
TAURUS is an imaging Fabry-Perot interferometer
which sits at the Cassegrain focus of the Anglo-Australian Telescope, Siding
Spring Observatory, Australia. The astronomical community is encouraged
to apply for observing time (see the AAO
homepage for details). The instrument has six basic modes of operation.
See the instrument manual for more details.TAURUS Tunable Filter (TTF)
TAURUS++ low resolution spectroscopy - long slit and multi-slit
TAURUS 3D line scanning (*under construction)
TAURUS diffuse detection
TAURUS time series (*under construction)
Differential photometry or differential
sky subtraction is available via the use of charge shuffling. For the seasoned
astronomer, published papers exist for all of the above observing modes.
Contact Joss Bland-Hawthorn for details.
When I get time, I will post a list to this web site.
