Paper Abstract

The FUEGOS multi-object area spectrograph will be one of the six instruments of the first generation for the very large telescope. It will be installed on one of the Nasmyth platforms of the telescope unit 3 at the beginning of the year 2001. The instrument includes a multi-object fiber linked spectrograph to observe simultaneously up 80 targets and a fiber anamorphoser for two-dimensional spectroscopy of extended objects. Description of the instrument, its performances and status of the project are reported in this paper.
