Paper Abstract

In order to take full advantage of CCD detector arrays for high dispersion astronomical spectroscopy, an echelle spectrograph is being designed and built for the Palomar sixty inch reflecting telescope. Critical to the performance of the spectrograph is the design of a seven element lens for the spectrograph camera, which has proved capable of 20 micron spot diameters over the CCD field and for wavelengths ranging from 320 nm to 700 nm.
