Quality control

An automated procedure was made that obtains detector quality control measurements every Sunday afternoon. The results of this are now automatically updated on the web

both graphically and in table form. Graphs are provided for all supported amplifier, gain and binning modes (18 modes in total).

A sequencer script (with inbuilt tutorial) was made to obtain FIES flux-standard star observations for quality control. An automatic reduction pipeline to analyze these observations was made and the reduced standard-star efficiencies are now available at

which lists the average BVR efficiencies.

In the future all the results of the quality control scripts will be added to the main data base.
