GALAH makes use of the High Efficiency and Resolution Multi-Element Spectrograph (HERMES) at the Anglo-Australian Telescope. This unique instrument employs the Two Degree Field (2dF) fibre positioner on the Anglo-Australian Telescope to provide multiobject (n~392), high-resolution (R~28000) spectra optimized for elemental abundance studies for up to 30 elements in four optical windows. The HERMES instrument was built specifically for the GALAH survey.
