Up-to-date information about existing Magellan instruments can be found through links off the Las Campanas web site. Links at the left will take you to instrument team web pages.
The Magellan SAC approved an updated Magellan Instrument Procedures and Policies manual (PDF) on October 30, 2008. Instrument builders should read this carefully before proposing to build and/or deliver a Magellan instrument.
We're building a cleanroom laboratory at Las Campanas to support the large Magellan instruments. Construction should be finished before the end of 2009.
