Paper Abstract

The Subaru telescope had its astronomical first light at the Cassegrain focus in January 1999. Fine tuning of the telescope and commissioning of the seven open-use instruments at four foci of the Subaru telescope are in progress. An overview of the updated status of the observational instruments is presented with reference to papers addressed during this series of conferences. General status of the Subaru telescope, the plan for the open use of the instruments, and the scope for the second generation instruments under investigation are also reported.
