Title: Installation and Integration of SPIRou at CFHT

Presenter: Greg Barrick


After the acceptance review for SPIRou in Toulouse in December 2017, SPIRou was shipped to CFHT. Thanks to the tremendous efforts by the teams from L'Institut de Recherche en Astrophysique et Planétologie (IRAP - Toulouse), L'Observatoire de Haute-Provence (OHP), the National Research Council (NRC - Victoria), l’Université de Montréal (UdeM), and CFHT, the instrument has successfully progressed from delivery, to installation, to integration, and finally to functioning on-sky. The work involved in making this a reality will be presented.
