TÍTULO: MOONS: The Multi-Object Optical and Near-IR Spectrograph for the Very Large Telescope


RESUMEN: After completion of its final-design review last year, the construction of MOONS - the next generation multi-object spectrograph for the VLT continues full steam ahead. This remarkable instrument will combine for the first time: the 8 m collecting power of the VLT, 1000 optical fibers with individual robotic positioners, and simultaneous medium-resolution spectral coverage from 0.65 - 1.8 μm. Such a tool will allow us to address important questions in Galactic, extragalactic and cosmological fields. In this talk I will present an overview of the instrument, its capabilities and science priorities. In particular, I will provide a brief overview of the plans for one of the surveys to be carried as part of the MOONS consortium GTO, aiming to produce the most detailed chemo-dynamical map of the innermost Milky Way components.
