Hi Andrew,

You are correct in your assumption that the BAA Spectroscopy Database does not support IRAF multispec format at this time. However, it is possible to build in support. The big question is how long it would take me to build, noting I already have some outstanding development work for the VSS Database.

It may take until the second half of May or June to take a proper look at the file format. Then I can assess whether a ‘quick’ change is possible.

Note of course that the other header fields would need to be BeSS compliant. If this is going to be a problem then it won’t be worth going down the route of building IRAF multispec compatibility.

Best wishes,

Andy, BAA Spectroscopy Database Manager
