Near IR imaging and spectroscopy with
the MMT and Magellan Infrared Spectrograph

Igor Chilingaryan and Brian McLeod (CfA)

The MMT and Magellan Infrared Spectrograph (MMIRS) is currently available for observers at the Magellan Clay Telescope. We will review the current capabilities and performance of the instrument for imaging, longslit and multiobject IR spectroscopy. We will then discuss upcoming upgrades to the grism suite and the IR detector. Following a presentation of the new MMIRS data reduction pipeline we will conclude with several scientific highlights.
