ALPY flat alternatives

Forums Spectroscopy Flats (2);-) ALPY flat alternatives

Hi Steve,

At least the ALPY is stable enough not to have to go to the extreme of taking flats with the scope still aimed at the target  like you have to do with the LHIRES if you have a camera with small scale ripples.

Before I had the calibration module, I injected the light from the RELCO calibration lamp via a reversed flip mirror. Perhaps a diffused incandescent light source could also be used this way to produce a flat.
