Quasar feedback measured
This page describes how to search and download the baseline calibrations from the GSA. This includes:
For all queue
observations, a set of standard calibrations (the "baseline
calibrations") will be taken by Gemini Staff
to ensure the long-term utility of data in the archive. The baseline
calibration set varies from instrument to instrument and from mode to
mode. The table below describes the GSAOI baseline calibrations, as well
as provides information on how and when to request additional frames.
The F2 On-Instrument Wavefront Sensor (OIWFS) consists of a 2x2 lenslet array on a moveable arm that patrols an area in front of the mask plane. Signals from the OIWFS are fed to the secondary for fast tip-tilt guiding and to the primary for astigmatism correction.
This section mainly describes how to prepare and check FLAMINGOS-2 observations. Setting up observing sequences at Phase II is not intuitive until one is quite experienced (and maybe even not then). Thus, the key to successful observation preparation is starting from the FLAMINGOS-2 OT Library.
- The probe vignettes the F2 FOV.
- The flexure between the probe arm and the detector has not been quantified

- A “Shockingly Bright” Gamma-ray Burst
- A Gap in a Pre-Transitional Disk
- FLAMINGOS-2 Commissioning Update
