Palomar Gattini-IR is a near-IR survey telescope at Palomar Observatory. Though it only has an aperture of 30 cm, it boasts a 25 sq deg field of view --- 40 times larger than any other existing infrared telescope. Palomar Gattini-IR is designed to survey the entire accessible sky (9,000 sq deg) to 16 AB mag (J band) every two nights. With survey operations in full swing, PGIR is facilitating a treasure trove of stellar science in the Milky Way. Read our papers at this ADS library link . Palomar Gattini-IR is a pathfinder for more advanced systems to eventually be constructed at the polar sites of the South Pole, Antarctica and near Eureka on Ellesmere Island, Canada, which will enable observations out to K band.
