Home Forums Spectroscopy Data required IRAF v ISIS

Andrew Smith

By processing Robin’s HD28305 data in ISIS without either calibration or instrument correction I managed to directly compare the result I got from IRAF. It shows they are in effect (and as one would expect) identical apart from small differences at the short wavelength end where my decision not to use a dark in IRAF is amplified by the flat correction. (As I understand it the 1 pixel shift in ISIS is well known)

This give me confidence in using IRAF and to make the next steps in wavelength calibration and then on to echelle spectra.
