Paper Abstract

Two low-dispersion scanning spectrophotometers were recently delivered to the Kitt Peak National Observatory (KPNO) for the astronom-ical community engaged in photometric observations there and at the Cerro Tololo Interameri can Observatory. Developed under a contract between the Associated Universities for Research in Astronomy (AURA, Inc.) and Harvard College, Observatory (HCO), these. two-channel units are designed to permit simultaneous observations of an object and the adjacent sky. Further, they were designed primarily to derive their control and data handling functions from small general purpose digital computers in the observatory domes to maximize the efficiency of the observing programs and the flexibility of operation.
