Paper Abstract

MegaCam is the new wide-field imaging camera currently being built for the new prime focus of the 3.6m Canada-France- Hawaii Telescope. The camera will offer a 1 square degree field of view and is built around a mosaic of 40 2K by 4.5K CCD devices. The delivery of the CCDs is proceeding along the schedule, the project passe dits final design review and the realization phase started, for an expected delivery to CFHT in Summer 2001.
