Mt. Abu Faint Object Spectrograph and Camera – Pathfinder (MFOSC-P) is an imager-spectrograph developed for the Physical Research Laboratory (PRL) 1.2m telescope at Gurushikhar, Mt. Abu, India. MFOSC-P is based on a focal reducer concept and provides seeing limited imaging (with a sampling of 3.3 pixels per arc-second) in Bessell’s B, V, R, I and narrowband H-α filters. The instrument uses three plane reflection gratings, covering the spectral range of 4500-8500Å, with three different…
