ABSTRACT
Nigel is a fiber-fed UV/visible grating spectrograph with a thermoelectrically-cooled 256 1024 pixel CCD camera,
designed to measure the twilight and night sky brightness from 300 nm to 850 nm. Nigel has three pairs of fibers,
each with a field-of-view with an angular diameter of 25 degrees, pointing in three fixed positions towards the
