Caption: Prototype NIRSpec Demonstration Model without its protective cover. The NIRSpec Demonstration Model is mechanically representative of the flight instrument, but only the pick-off mirror and Foreoptics are optically functional and a near-IR detector array has been placed in the position of the Micro-Shutter Array.
