  • Focal Plane Mechanism O Open (implies direct acquisition & peak-up) S Slit (Reflective Longslit Plate; implies visual acquisition & peak-up) M Multi-slit mask (non-reflective carbon fiber; implies blind peak-up)Dispersive Elements I Imaging (none) (Implies no camera articulation) F Fabry-Perot Etalon (Implies no camera articulation) G Grating (Articulated camera)Polarization Elements U Unpolarized measurement (quartz block in place of waveplates) L Linear polarization measurement (1/2 waveplate; max 4 spatial field) C Circular polarization measurement (1/2 and waveplate; max 4 spatial field) A All-stokes mode (both waveplates operational in sync; 4 spatial field)CCD subsystem (see detector ICD for full explanation of readout modes) N - Normal readouts with exposure times of at least 3.6 s. Standard 2x2 binning H - High time resolution with frame-transfer in operation; max 4 spatial field with lower half masked; objects confined to small region of chip just above CTB; continuous readout. V - Vertical shift operations, including vertical charge shuffling in conjunction with telescope nods to perform high-quality sky subtraction (spectroscopy) or off-band subtraction (Fabry-Perot spectroscopy), or time-series spectroscopy or spectropolarimetry. D - Drift scan or arbitrary charge-shuffling in use; CCD is clocked at a sidereal rate
