RETROCAM: A Versatile Optical Imager for Synoptic Studies Academic Article uri icon


  • We present RETROCAM, an auxiliary CCD camera that can be rapidly inserted into the optical beam of the MDM 2.4 m telescope. The speed and ease of reconfiguring the telescope to use the imager and a straightforward user interface permit the camera to be used during the course of other observing programs. This in turn encourages RETROCAM's use for a variety of monitoring projects. 2005. The American Astronomical Society. All rights reserved.
