Paper Abstract

The 2dF project aims to provide the Anglo-Australian Telescope with the ability to perform multi-object fiber spectroscopy of 400 objects within a 2 degree field. The 2dF project has now reached a stage where telescope time is being allocated to use this new facility on a regular basis for science observations. We will review the current status of the 2dF project in terms of the performance and operation of the instrument hardware and software. We will describe some of the wide variety of scientific projects attempted during the first year of shared risks observing and commissioning.
