Paper Abstract

Using two spectrograph camera layouts, the instrumental constraints that influence their performance are explored. If the spectrograph already exists, at the secondary focus of a telescope, overall instrument length and detector implementation are the main impediments for camera future development. Ruling out a total instrument remake, trade-offs are suggested that may help during a transitional period.
