Paper Abstract

Discussion of a optical design for an Eight Channel Imager/Polarimeter is presented. The design will cover the optical and Near Infrared(NIR) wavelengths from 330nm to 2400nm in a simultaneous acquisition mode for eight distinct broad bands. The simultaneous acquisition provides capabilities to study unique events such as supernovae, Gamma Ray Bursts(GRBs), and occultations. It also increases the efficiency of long term monitoring programs such as the study of blazars. The selection of the wavelength bands were specifically chosen to match the Sloan Digital Sky Survey(u0, g0, r0, i0,z0) and the 2MASS(J,H,K) catalogs.
