Paper Abstract

A wide-field near-infrared (0.8 - 2.4 μm) camera for the 1.6 m telescope of the Observatoire du mont Megantic (OMM), is currently under construction at the Universite de Montreal. The field of view is 30' × 30' and will have very little distortion. The optics comprise 8 spherical cryogenic lenses. The instrument features two filter wheels with provision for 10 filters including broad band I, z, J, H, K and other narrow-band filters. The camera is based on a 2048 × 2048 HgCdTe Hawaii-2 detector driven by a 3--output SDSU-II controller operating at ~250 kHz.
