Abstract
An automated multi-object spectroscopy system (AMOS) is being developed for use on the 3-meter telescope at Lick Observatory. The overall design is compatible with the eventual goal of acquiring up to one hundred spectra simultaneously in a one degree field of view. The speed and accuracy of AMOS preserve the real time decision making and field changing flexibility associated with traditional singlesource observing techniques. AMOS will operate at the 3-meter prime focus and will feed a floor-mounted spectrograph. We describe some engineering design details and the results of laboratory and 1-meter telescope testing of AMOS.
