NOTCam Status Report, Feb 1997

  • The contract with the Royal Observatory Edinburgh for the detailed optical design and opto-mechanical concept design was signed in Feb 97. ROE are now well on the way with the design of NOTCam. Eli Atad of ROE is working on the detailed optical design of the instrument and three lens units (wide-field, high-resolution and pupil imaging lenses) and completion is expected within 2-3 months. Peter Hastings of ROE will start full-time work on the NOTCam opto-mechanical design in April 97 and, working with Eli, will produce the final mechanical concept design towards the middle of 97.

    More details on the optical design will be posted when available.
