TEXES Returns to Gemini North

The visiting instrument TEXES, (a high-resolution mid-infrared spectrograph) currently on Gemini North, continues its run despite interruptions by a hurricane and other weather events. The TEXES team is well-along in observing all of their highest-priority targets, and expects to observe many more before their run ends on August 17th. The TEXES visiting team commented that the Gemini day crew, and other support staff have, “…helped us out a ton,” and Gemini staff look forward to many more visits by TEXES and other visiting instruments.

Here’s a quick behind-the-scenes time-lapse of the Gemini day crew installing TEXES on its previous visit to Mauna Kea.
