Abstract (from CDS):

CorMASS (Cornell Massachusetts Slit Spectrograph) is a compact, low-resolution (R∼300), double-pass prism cross-dispersed near-infrared (NIR) spectrograph in operation on the Palomar Observatory 60 inch telescope. Its two-dimensional spectral format provides simultaneous coverage of λ∼0.75 µm to λ∼2.5 µm (zacuteJHK bands). A remotely operated cold flip mirror permits its NICMOS3 detector to function as a Ks slit viewer to assist object placement into the 2''x15'' slit. CorMASS was primarily designed for the rapid spectral classification of low-mass stellar and substellar objects identified by the Two-Micron All Sky Survey (2MASS). The efficiency and resolution of CorMASS also make it a versatile instrument for the spectral observation and classification of many other types of bright objects (K<14) including quasars, novae, and emission-line objects.
