Paper Abstract

Two wide field, multiple beam, near IR cameras are being developed for the MMT and Whipple Observatories. For the MMT a triple beamed, 1024 X 1024 pixel camera for the 6.5-m f/5 is being designed. As a prototype for the MMT and for use on the Whipple Observatory 1.2-m telescope, a dual beamed, 256 X 256 InSb array camera with three selectable magnifications has been built and in use for the past year.
