Abstract
We report the performance of Triplespec from commissioning observations on the 200-inch Hale Telescope at Palomar Observatory. Triplespec is one of a set of three near-infrared, cross-dispersed spectrographs covering wavelengths from 1 - 2.4 microns simultaneously at a resolution of ~2700. At Palomar, Triplespec uses a 1×30 arcsecond slit. Triplespec will be used for a variety of scientific observations, including moderate to high redshift galaxies, star formation, and low mass stars and brown dwarfs. When used in conjunction with an externally dispersed interferometer, Triplespec will also detect and characterize extrasolar planets.
