Photo of multi-object spectrograph at Lick Observatory The new multi-object spectrograph (MOS) at Lick Observatory sits at the prime focus of the 120-inch Shane Telescope, secured in place by a "top-end" structure built at the UCO/Lick Observatory shops on campus. The powerful observing tool is the brainchild of Jean Brodie, associate professor of astronomy and astrophysics at UCSC, and was jointly developed by engineers, opticians, and technicians at UCO/Lick Observatory and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. MOS became available to the astronomical community for routine use last fall. (Photos: Matt Radovan, UCO/Lick Observatory engineering laboratory)
