Paper Abstract

High precision Doppler observations of bright stars can be made efficiently with small aperture telescopes. We are constructing a high resolution echelle spectrograph for the new 0.6 m telescope at Central Washington University. The spectrograph is fed by a multimode fiber and operates in the visible wavelength range of 380-670 nm. The spectrograph uses a white pupil design with 100 mm beam diameter and a monolithic R4 echelle grating.
