Welcome to the OSIRIS Home Page!
OSIRIS is an imaging system and a low-resolution long-slit and multi-object spectrograph for the GTC (Gran Telescopio Canarias). It will be installed on Day One in the Nasmyth-B focus, although will be designed to work also at the Cassegrain focus.
Here is the list of proposals awarded with OSIRIS Guaranteed Time.
The "blog" of OSIRIS allows to follow the progress in the instrument integration.
Granada Workshop 2008:
Observing with OSIRIS
The aim of this workshop is to provide hands-on training ranging from the initial steps of preparing the observations, using tools such as exposure time estimators, the OPMS and the mask designers, all through obtaining the final calibrated data using specific techniques and data reduction programs. The workshop will be held during September 15th and 16th at the IAA-CSIC in Granada. More details here.
