Blocking Filters

The table below lists all filters, including the wavenumbers/wavelengths of half the maximum transmission, that are available for use with Phoenix. Note that the CVF filters described in the NOAO Instrument Manual are no longer available. The second filter wheel is called CVF for historical reasons only.
