Paper Abstract

After five years of development, the REGAIN project has obtained its first light during summer 1999. The main goals were improving the quality and quantity of data through a complete re-designing and re-building of the central beam combiner. The REGAIN interferometric bonnette delivers two coherent foci, one at visible wavelengths and one in the IR bands (J, H and K). The visible focus is equipped with a dedicated visible spectrograph and two photon counting detectors. The infrared focus can be equipped with different instruments. I will discuss the main technical issues that have been chosen.
