SpectroCam-10 is a 10 micrometers spectrograph and camera built at Cornell University as a facility instrument for the 200 inch Hale telescope. The instrument is optimized for operation from (lambda) equals 8 to 13 micrometers in three modes: a medium-resolution spectrography (R equals (lambda) /(Delta) (lambda) approximately equals 2000), a low-resolution spectrography (R approximately equals 100), and a camera with diffraction limited (0.5 arcsec) spatial resolution. An optical flat and two reflection gratings mounted on a cryogenic rotating mechanism allow rapid switching between modes. The detector is a Rockwell 128 X 128 Si:As Back Illuminated Blocked Impurity Band array. We discuss the design and operation of the instrument, and present some scientific results from our early observing runs at Palomar.
