Paper Abstract

We have developed an optical-infrared instrument HONIR (Hiroshima Optical and Near-InfraRed camera) to be attached to the 1.5-m Kanata telescope at Higashi-Hiroshima Observatory, Hiroshima University. HONIR is a three color (one optical and two near-infrared bands among 0.5–2.4 µm) simultaneous imager and spectrograph with a polarimetry function. The field of view of the imaging mode is 10 arcmin square with a spatial sampling of 0".29. Among the planned multipurpose functions, a two color (0.5–1.0 µm and 1.15–2.40 µm) simultaneous imaging function has been installed and operated so far. The remaining functions, spectroscopy and polarimetry, and the second near-infrared band arm, are under development and will be installed in the near future.
