SALT/PFIS Observer's Guide

3.1 Imaging

The PFIS optical design is not optimized for broad-band imaging. Narrow-band imaging may be performed with either the FP interference filters or possibly additional filters to be added to the complement. However, we expect that SALTICAM will be the primary instrument for SALT imaging programs.

The primary use for PFIS imaging will be for commissioning level astrometric and distortion characterizations. Additionally, PFIS may be used for some context imaging of fields that will be used for multi-slit observations.
