Ten MilliArcsecond (TMAS) camera TWiki


TMAS is a simple visible-light imager system to enable high-angular-resolution science with PALM-3000. It consists of a pair of high-speed 2k x 2k Andor NEO sCMOS cameras (borrowed, for now), with an option of alternatively using a borrowed Andor 888 L3CCD which would provide higher QE but slower frame rate and smaller FoV in one of the arms. Future options include a fiber output port to support precision RV spectroscopy tests. TMAS integrates an atmospheric dispersion corrector (ADC) and dual filter wheels.

Project Status

TMAS is in development phase and is expected to be ready for on-sky testing in June 2012.


TMAS is a Caltech collaboration with scientists from JPL. The co-PI's are Drs Sergi Hildebrandt and Richard Dekany, Caltech.
