Paper Abstract

WYFFOS is a bench-mounted spectrograph based on a Baranne white pupil design, located on one of the Nasmyth platforms of the William Herschel Telescope. It is fed by 126 optical fibers which are accurately positioned in the corrected one degree focal plane by the robotic positioner. AUTOFIB-2 at the prime focus of the WHT. We describe two enhancements to the normal use of WYFFOS; the provision of an 'echelle' mode of operation, and the design for a new longer focal length camera.
