MIKE: A Double Echelle Spectrograph for the Magellan Telescopes at Las Campanas Observatory
The Magellan Inamori Kyocera Echelle (MIKE) is a double echelle spectrograph designed for use at the Magellan Telescopes at Las Campanas Observatory in Chile. It is currently in the final stages ofExpand
The Luminosity Function of Galaxies in the Las Campanas Redshift Survey
We present the $R$-band luminosity function for a sample of 18678 galaxies, with average redshift $z = 0.1$, from the Las Campanas Redshift Survey. The luminosity function may be fit by a SchechterExpand
The Las Campanas Redshift Survey
The Las Campanas Redshift Survey (LCRS) consists of 26418 redshifts of galaxies selected from a CCD-based catalog obtained in the $R$ band. The survey covers over 700 square degrees in 6 strips, eachExpand
An Empirical Characterization of Extended Cool Gas Around Galaxies Using Mg II Absorption Features
We report results from a survey of Mg II absorbers in the spectra of background QSOs that are within close angular distances to a foreground galaxy at z 0.6), 71 of which are in an ’isolated’Expand
IMACS: The Inamori-Magellan Areal Camera and Spectrograph on Magellan-Baade
The Inamori-Magellan Areal Camera and Spectrograph (IMACS) is a wide-field, multipurpose imaging spectrograph on the Magellan-Baade telescope at Las Campanas Observatory. IMACS has two channels—f/2Expand
The environment of "E+A" galaxies
The violent star formation history of ``E+A'' galaxies and their detection almost exclusively in distant clusters is frequently used to link them to the ``Butcher-Oemler effect'' and to argue thatExpand
Evidence for substructure in rich clusters of galaxies from radial-velocity measurements
New radial-velocity measurements in 15 clusters of galaxies are used to look for substructure. With a new statistical test that looks for deviations of the local velocity mean and dispersion from theExpand
The MagE spectrograph
The Magellan Echellette (MagE) spectrograph is a single-object optical echellette spectrograph for the Magellan Clay telescope. MagE has been designed to have high throughput in the blue; the peakExpand
Obliquities of Hot Jupiter host stars: Evidence for tidal interactions and primordial misalignments
We provide evidence that the obliquities of stars with close-in giant planets were initially nearly random, and that the low obliquities that are often observed are a consequence of star-planet tidalExpand
A SEARCH FOR STARS OF VERY LOW METAL ABUNDANCE. VI. DETAILED ABUNDANCES OF 313 METAL-POOR STARS*
We present radial velocities, equivalent widths, model atmosphere parameters, and abundances or upper limits for 53 species of 48 elements derived from high resolution optical spectroscopy of 313Expand
