A 1k x 1k IR camera for imaging at CFHT

CFHT-IR is a general purpose 1024 x 1024 near-infrared camera for direct imaging at the F/8 Cassegrain focus (0.2" pixels, 3.5' FOV). It has also been in the past the infrared detector for multi-object spectroscopy with OSIS. CFHT-IR has been developed as a collaborative effort between Université de Montréal and CFHT. Commissioning took place in November 2000 and CFHT-IR has been regularly used for science since then.
