HiPERCAM

HiPERCAM-related links:

HiPERCAM is an ERC-funded instrument (PI Dhillon, Sheffield) to carry out high-speed multi-band imaging. It works with 5 frame-transfer CCDs to cover the ugriz band simultaneously. It is jointly operated by Sheffield and Warwick. We have mounted it on the 4.2m WHT and 10.6m GTC telescopes on the island of La Palma in the Canary Islands, Spain.
