Abstract

We have just finished building a 1.0–5.5 μm infrared array camera for the NASA Infrared Telescope Facility based upon the SBRC 256×256 InSb array. After a brief overview of the capabilities of the camera (named NSFCAM), we present some of the first images obtained with this new camera, including results obtained with our realtime “shift & add” speckle imaging mode.
