MUSTANG is a 90 GHz bolometer camera built for use as a facility instrument on the 100 m Robert C. ByrdGreen Bank radio telescope (GBT). MUSTANG has an 8 by 8 focal plane array of transition edge sensorbolometers read out using time-domain multiplexed SQUID electronics. As a continuum instrument on a largesingle dish MUSTANG has a combination of high resolution (8) and good sensitivity to extended emissionwhich make it very competitive for a wide range of galactic and extragalactic science. Commissioning finishedin January 2008 and some of the first science data have been collected.
