Supported Instruments

On the SAAO telescopes, instruments we support include the SHOC cameras, GIRAFFE, HIPPO, the SAAO CCD cameras, and the Cassegrain Spectrograph on the 1.9-metre telescope.

We additionally support equipment at the SAAO’s hosted facilities, such as the IRSF, LCOGT, MONET, GFZ, SolarisMeerLICHT, SuperWasp, Bison, KELT, KMTnet and MASTER.

On the Southern African Large Telescope (SALT), the Instrumentation Division built the SALTICAM imaging device and the RSS cryostat. We support and maintain those systems as well as the HRS and other RSS components.
