Additional Notes

[Info] New Flat Field Screen

A new Flat Field Screen has been mounted at the ESO 1.52m telescope dome to improve the reflectivity in the blu spectral region. Have a look at the ratio between two flat field exposures (grating #23) taken with the new and the old screen.

[Info] New Gratings #33 and #34

Two new gratings are now available at the B&C of the 1.52m ESO telescope. See their characteristics and efficiency (#33 and #34).
