Huntsman selfie
by Lee Spitler (UMacquarie/AAO)
Pictured is Lee Spitler (right), co-PI of the Huntsman project, and Juan Madrid (left), new member of CSIRO Astronomy and Space Science (CASS) and the WALLABY project. Additional lenses for the Huntsman observing system are now in the many boxes pictured here. They will be assembled early next year to expand the capabilities of the Huntsman that is based upon the Dragonfly Telephoto Array, which uses off the shelf Canon lenses to target extremely faint stellar structures. Like the multiple lenses of a Huntsman spider, an array of Canon lenses will enable the study of faint stellar structures at the outskirts of and in between galaxies. It will complement searches for faint HI gas streams using the Australian SKA Pathfinder (ASKAP) as part of the WALLABY project.
