Paper Abstract

Our contribution intends to present the obtained performances of the NƎSIE instrument, a new near-infrared fiber-fed spectrograph developed at the University of Liège. This instrument was developed, aligned and tested at the Centre Spatial de Liège and first light was achieved in October 2017. This paper will go through the alignment process and optical performance verification to eventually introduce the first light observations. The final location of NƎSIE will be the TIGRE telescope located in La Luz, Mexico. The observational data provided by this instrument will help several research groups from the University of Liège to study massive stars. In particularly, evolution models will be improved through the comparison of the collected spectra with theoretical models. This collaboration will therefore contribute to a better understanding of massive stars and the mechanisms that take place within these extraordinary objects.
