" Progress in Australia on FMOS and Antarctic Astronomy;

Peter Gillingham (Anglo-Australian Observatory)


The AAO has now been collaborating with Subaru for several years to develop the multi-fibre feed system, Echidna, for FMOS. The current status of the project will be outlined.
Measurements over the past few years have justified confidence we in Australia have felt for many years that the best Antarctic sites will provide remarkable opportunities for astronomy. In particular, seeing measurements at Dome C have indicated median seeing diameters about half those obtained on Mauna Kea. Some details of these results and a discussion of general Antarctic properties will be presented.


Seminars are also held at JAC, CFHT, and IfA.
