In situ lunar surface visible and near-IR measurements

The Visible and Near-IR Imaging Spectrometer onboard China's Chang'E 3 lunar rover uses non-collinear acousto-optic tunable filters to make mineralogical and compositional measurements.

The solid telescope uses multiple reflections between two polished and coated surfaces of a single lens.
