T-ReCS on Gemini South was used to obtain an image of Mars using a spectral filter centered at a wavelength of 12.8 microns. The image was made on 2003 June 4.
A razor-sharp image was released today revealing new details at the heart of a famous star cluster M-13, taken with adaptive optics system Altair on Gemini North.
Astronomers used the mid-infrared camera OSCIR mounted on Gemini North to observe the nuclear region of NGC 4151 at the wavelengths of 10.8 and 18.2 microns.
Gemini's Near-Infrared Imager, NIRI, was trained on the magnetar 1E 2259+586 shortly after X-ray bursts were detected in June of 2002.
Astronomers have embarked on a study of aperiodic optical variability of SXTs, using the Acquisition Camera on the Gemini South telescope, in order to explore the source of the microflares on short timescales.
Henry Roe and collaborators used adaptive optics to study Titan's clouds and the observations have revealed that the southern hemisphere shows more cloud activity than the northern hemisphere.
In late February/early March, staff members completely moved into the new Gemini South Southern Base Facility in La Serena, Chile.
The Gemini Near-infrared Imager (NIRI) has been working reliably and delivering excellent images at wavelengths between 1 and 5 microns.
The tightest orbiting brown dwarf companion ever seen has been discovered orbiting the low mass star LHS 2397a, using adaptive optics on Gemini North.
