This instrument also benefits from a proven design, that of the Hobby-Eberly Telescope recently completed at McDonald Observatory in Texas (S&T: December 1997, page 16).
Reid, for his part, looks forward to matching subdwarfs one-to-one with their counterpart stars in globular clusters; 10-meter-class telescopes like the twin Keck reflectors and the Hobby-Eberly Telescope should make this possible.
Hatzes and his colleague William Cochran will soon be taking spectra with the 11-meter Hobby-Eberly telescope in western Texas.
