Abstract: Here we report the main characteristics of the recently acquired near infrared camera. It is based on a 256x256 HgCdTe Nicmos-3 array, sensitive from 1 mu m to 2.5mu m. The pixel size is 40mu mx40mu m, adequate for the spatial and spectral scales at the different telescopes operating at the observatories of La Palma and Tenerife. The cooling system operates with LN2 with a hold time larger than 20 hours. The camera will be used for photometric, spectroscopic and spectropolarimetric observations.
