WISPI in the Dome

In late 1995, for observations of comets Hale-Bopp and Hyakutake, WISPI with its original liquid nitrogen cooled, back-illuminated, thinned CCD was located in the main dome at Moore Observatory. The mounting was placed on a temporary platform to put it above the dome wall, and the instrument was operated from the warm control room.
