Paper Abstract

Okayama Astrophysical Observatory Wide Field Camera is a near-infrared (0.9-2.5 μm) survey telescope, built as a renewal of 0.91 m classical Cassegrain telescope. The optics is composed of forward Cassegrain and quasi Schmidt, which yield an effective image circle of Φ51 mm. A HAWAII-1 PACE detector is placed at the focal plane, which gives a field of view of 0.48 deg.×0.48 deg. with image scale of 1.67 arcsec/pix. OAOWFC is used to monitor the Galactic plane for variability and search for EM counterpart of gravitational wave sources.
