2MASS - Two micron all sky survey
2MASS uniformly scanned the entire sky in three near-infrared bands using two automated 1.3-m telescopes, one at Mt. Hopkins, AZ, and one at CTIO, Chile. 2MASS detected and characterized point sources brighter than about 1 mJy in each band. This achieved an 80,000-fold improvement in sensitivity relative to earlier surveys.
Spitzer Space Telescope (formerly SIRFT)
Spitzer is a point and shoot satellite in operation since 2003. It covers a region from 3 to 180 microns. The 0.85-meter telescope supports three instruments. The spectrograph system covers the range from 5.3 - 40 microns.
ISO - Infrared Space Observatory
ISO was a point and shoot astronomical satellite operated between November 1995 and May 1998 by the European Space Agency. It was 1000 times more sensitive and has an angular resolution 100 times better than IRAS. The 0.6 m telescope supported two spectrographs. It operated at wavelengths from 2.5 to 240 microns. ISO made well over 26,000 scientific observations.
NICMOS - Hubble Space Telescope Near Infrared Camera
The Hubble Space Telescope Near Infrared Camera and Multi-Object Spectrometer is a point and shoot device covering the band 0.8 to 2.5 microns. 
WISE Infrared Survey Explorer
The WISE mission was launched in 2009. It used a 40 cm diameter telescope WISE took data at four wavelengths; 3.4 microns; 4.6 microns; 12 microns; 22 microns. The angular resolution was 6 - 12 arc seconds. It is now called NEOWISE.
