Sivanandam and Law described the recent installation of instrumentation at the PEARL research station on Ellesmere Island, including two wide-field cameras, a sky-brightness monitoring instrument, and a seeing-monitoring instrument. Sivanandam and Law also described recently submitted NSERC Research Tools and Instrument (RTI) grant proposals for an ultra-low surface brightness imager, a second-generation Arctic wide-field camera, and a planet-finding camera system.
