We present new 5.2-14.5 {mu}m low-resolution spectra of 14 mid-L to mid-T dwarfs. We also present new 3.0-4.1 {mu}m spectra for five of these dwarfs. These data are supplemented by existing red and near-infrared spectra ({approx}0.6-2.5 {mu}m), as well as red through mid-infrared spectroscopy of seven other L and T dwarfs presented by Cushing et al. We compare these spectra to those generated from the model atmospheres of Saumon and Marley. The models reproduce the observed spectra well, except… 
THE PROPERTIES OF THE 500 K DWARF UGPS J072227.51–054031.2 AND A STUDY OF THE FAR-RED FLUX OF COLD BROWN DWARFS*
We present i and z photometry for 25 T dwarfs and 1 L dwarf. Combined with published photometry, the data show that the i – z, z – Y, and z – J colors of T dwarfs are very red, and continue to
