Paper Abstract

We describe Corneirs NIR camera system for the Hale 200” telescope adaptive optics system at Palomar Observatory. The instrument is under construction at this time, and we expect first light at the telescope in December 1997. Here we summarize the camera’s design as well as its expected performance.
