Paper Abstract

We discuss a design for an echelle spectrograph based on three prisms as the cross-dispersing optical elements. Since high throughput in our particular system is achieved using an image slicer, obtaining adequate order separation is a challenge. We find that the design described herein yields good efficiencies throughout the visible wavelength range while also providing adequate order separation in the red.
