The first Korean IR space telescope MIRIS (Multi-purpose Infra-Red Imaging System) developed by Korea Astronomy and Space Science Institute (KASI) was successfully launched as the primary payload onboard the Science and Technology Satellite-3 of Korea (STSAT-3) in November 2013. The main mission of MIRIS is the Paschen-alpha emission line survey along the Galactic plane and the cosmic infrared background (CIB) observation, particularly around the north pole region, with a wide field of view (3.67x3.67 degree) with a resolution of 51.6' and wavelength coverage of 0.9~2.0 micro-m. Optical components of MIRIS consist of a 80mm main lens and four other lenses with 2/F forcal ratio optics and the telescope was designed to use a passive cooling technique (~200 K) in order to reduce the thermal noise. A micro Stirling cooler was used to cool down the Teledyne PICNIC IR array to 90 K, equipped in a dewar with 4 filters for IR passbands of I, H, and Paschen-alpha and a dual-band continuum line fileter.
