MORIS (MIT Optical Rapid Imaging System) is an facility science camera used for observing on the IRTF. This high-speed, visible wavelength camera is mounted on the side window of SpeX, an near-IR imager and spectrograph. The design is based on POETS (Portable Occultation, Eclipse, and Transit System), which was developed by MIT and Williams Colleges.
