Paper Abstract

The Multi-Object Double Spectrographs (MODS) are two identical high-throughput optical dichroic-split double-beam low- to medium-dispersion CCD spectrometers being deployed at the Large Binocular Telescope (LBT). They operate in the 3200-10500Å range at a nominal resolution of λ/δλ≈2000. MODS1 saw first-light at the LBT in September 2010, finished primary commissioning in May 2011, and began regular partner science operations in September 2011. MODS2 is being readied for delivery and installation at the end of 2012. This paper describes the on-sky performance of MODS1 and presents highlights from the first year of science operations.
