Multi-object Optical and Near-IR Spectrograph

(advanced spectrograph under development for VLT)

MOONS (for Multi-object Optical and Near infrared Spectrograph) is a multi-object spectrograph in development for European Southern Observatory Very Large Telescope, aiming for a high spectral resolution, capability to simultaneously observe a large number of objects, with a robotic fiber positioner and a wide field of view over which to observe simultaneously. The aim is to begin science operations in 2020.
