MMIRS settles into new home at the MMT

MMIRS (MMT and Magellan Infrared Spectrograph) has just completed its first successful week of commissioning at the MMT. The team took imaging data, longslit spectra, multi-object slit mask spectra all with control from MMIRS of the telescope guiding and wavefront sensing. 

Congratulations to the team – we look forward to the next run in a couple of weeks time.
