Optical Paths:

The CorMASS spectrograph optical path originates at the slit and is represented by the red ray traces. The slit-viewing optical path, which reflects off the slit, is represented by the green rays. Moving the flip mirror in or out of the spectrograph path selects which optical train will be imaged onto the detector. The movable flip mirror mount blocks the train not in use to prevent stray light.
