Abstract / Description:An overview of the current status of the 8.2m
Subaru Telescope constructed and operated at
Mauna Kea, Hawaii, by the National Astronomical
Observatory of Japan is presented. The basic
design concept and the verified performance of
the telescope system are described. Also given
are the status of the instrument package offered
to the astronomical community, the status of
operation, and some of the future plans. The
status of the telescope reported in a number of
SPIE papers as of the summer of 2002 are
incorporated with some updates included as of
2004 February. However, readers are encouraged to
check the most updated status of the telescope
through the home page,
http://subarutelescope.org/index.html, and/or the
direct contact with the observatory staff.
