The 2014B Gemini Observing Tool is now available for download. This update is required to access the database. Installation instructions are linked off of the Observing Tool web page, and we recommend that everyone download their programs from scratch from the ODBs rather than import from saved XMLs.

FLAMINGOS-2 is a Near-Infrared wide field imager and multi-object spectrometer for use on Gemini-South. It was constructed by the University of Florida Astronomy Department. FLAMINGOS-2 was first delivered to Gemini in July 2009, was refurbished by the Gemini engineering team, and returned to commissioning in December 2011. In February 2012, the instrument's large collimator was found cracked. This lens and its holder have been replaced.
