“The Cannon” Spectral Modeling Recently, Gemini South hosted a mini-workshop about a new data-driven method for spectral modeling named “The Cannon.” Anna Ho from Caltech led the session with coordination by Gemini Assistant Scientist, Blair Conn and Richard Lane, from Pontificia Universidad Católica (PUC). The Cannon is fast, requires no physical models, and achieves comparable […]
The new Gemini Mask Making Preparation Software (GMMPS) is now available, and it supports both Gemini Multi-Object Spectrographs (GMOSs) at Gemini North and Gemini South detector configurations. Once updated, you will notice more efficient and fully compatible mask designs (older version mask designs may be rejected by Gemini). To find more information on major changes, […]
Congratulations to the winners from early contributions to the User Data Reduction Forum! The Users’ Committee for Gemini (UCG) evaluated the submissions and recommend that David Rupke be recognized for his large effort, and Andrew Stephens for his smaller submission. The contributions are IDL-based routines to work with data from integral field spectrographs, including NIFS […]
