Paper Abstract

The Subaru Telescope has seven first generation optical and infrared instruments now being handed-over from the instrument teams to the observatory and being offered for its open use. We describe brief history of the telescope project and overview of the instrumentation program. Brief status of the Individual instruments is given separately. Exchanging focal plane and instruments is important for such multi-purpose telescope and the effectiveness of the system with the Subaru Telescope is discussed. Finally, current challenges of the program and future plans are summarized.
