Goodman Multi-Object Spectroscopy (MOS) mode

Goodman Multi-Object Spectroscopy (MOS) mode brings multiplex capability over a field of view of 3' x 5'.
Custom MOS masks are designed with a Mask Designing software, developed at UNC.
Goodman carrousel has 16 available positions for MOS masks. 
Installing MOS masks is a daytime task, like changing filters, and should be requested beforehand in the Instrument Setup Form, or by email to the Support Astronomer with copy (cc) to, so our Observer Support staff also receives the request.

Click here to download the Goodman Mask Designing software (tested on Windows 7 and 10, 64-bit installations).
Now users have the option to design their MOS masks by login into a CTIO machine which is already running the mask design software. Please contact your Support Astronomer for details on VPN access, procedure and passwords.
