    Integral-field spectroscopic facility deployed at the Nasmyth focus of the WHT
    This instrument is particularly useful for kinematic studies of galaxies.

    This device picks up and dissects light from extended objects, and channels the light into WYFFOS fibre spectrograph. Three fibre bundles are available with field sizes ranging from 10 to 40 arcseconds and different fibre core sizes, which allow observers to make the most efficient use of the prevailing seeing conditions.
