SOFI Calibration Plan: Arcs

Arcs Spectra are taken with the template SOFI_spec_cal_Arcs.

  • Load the template SOFI_spec_cal_Arcs from /data/SOFI/SYSTEM/COMMON/OBD into Bob and run it. The calibration unit will be automatically moved in and the internal calibration lamps automatically switched on and off when necessary.
  • In the default mode a full Arcs calibration is taken for the 1 arcsec slit, including the low resolution Red and Blue grisms and the high resolution grism with the Z, J, H and Ks filters. It takes about 15 minutes to run the template with the default values of the parameters.
  • The calibration unit will be put out at the end of the template.
