SCORPIO-2:
Spectral Camera with Optical Reducer for Photometric and Interferometric Observations - 2

The multi-mode focal reducer SCORPIO-2 allows various observations of extended and stellar object to be performed at the primary focus of the SAO RAS 6-m telescope in following modes:
  • Direct images in Jounson-Cousins (UBVRI), SDSS (ugriz) photometric systems as well as in narrowband filters
  • Longs-slit spectroscopy
  • Longs-slit spectropolarimetry
  • Broad-band polarimetry
  • 3D-spectroscopy with scanning Fabry-Perot interferometer
  • 3D-spectroscopy with the integral-field unit (IFU)

SCORPIO-2 was designed and developed under the leadership of
Victor Afanasiev

SCORPIO-2 is the autor's instrument. The studies carried out with SCORPIO-2 are conducted in cooperation with the staff of the Laboratory of Spectroscopy and Photometry of Extragalactic Objects of SAO RAS.
The responsible astronomer is Alexei Moiseev(moisavgmail.com, moisavsao.ru)
