The MMTO is pleased to announce the arrival of the MMTCam – a sensitive optical imaging camera commissioned in November 2012 by Warren Brown of the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory. This instrument is mounted on the telescope with the f/5 secondary and offers exciting new capabilities, including responding to targets-of-opportunity, identifying transients, and allowing photometric monitoring of objects such as supernovae.
