The SCORPIO-2 project:
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)
  • *Multislit spectroscopy



*These modes are under construction
SCORPIO-2 is is temporarily removed from the test operations at the SAO RAS 6-m telescope for modernization. Applications for observations on the 6-m telescope are not accepted.
The responsible astronomers:
  • Victor Afanasiev (polarymetry, long-slit spectroscopy, direct images): vafansao.ru)
  • Alexei Moiseev (scanning FPI, long-slit spectroscopy, direct images: moisavsao.ru)
