As I mentioned in a previous post I am leaning IRAF. To this end I am working my way through its documentation to my final goal of reducing my fiber fed echelle spectra. Part of the learning curve is to reduce some long slit spectra. I used to have a LISA spectograph (donated to the BAA) but due to a computer crash I have lost my raw data ( I only backed up the final spectra - silly boy). If successful I also intend to do a cook book for armatures on IRAF spectral reduction.
I was wondering if some kind soul would let me have a set of data to process. It can be from any Shelyak long slit spectrgraph Lisa, LHires III or Aply (I would like to compare the result to ISIS). There is only one special addition to the normal set of data in that I would like two set of flats one with a few 100 ADU above bias and one with a few 1000 ADU above bias as IRAF uses these for bad pixel mapping. I would also line say 9 of each so I can try the different statistics in combining images.
In short I am looking for 9 each of
Any target star (preferably a Miles data base star or the cloudy sky will do!)
Calibration spectra (e.g. Ar Ne lamp)
Low ADU flats
High ADU flats
I would also need to know the camera make and model.
I would be happy to send a USB stick to simplify the transfer. I would, of course, acknowledge the data provider in any documents I produce.
