The GMOS-S CCDs have significant fringing in the red. This page shows examples of fringe frames in imaging mode in the i'-filter and the z'-filter as well as science data before and after correction for the fringing.
FLAMINGOS-2 is a Near-Infrared wide field imager and multi-object spectrometer for use on Gemini-South. It was constructed by the University of Florida Astronomy Department. FLAMINGOS-2 was first delivered to Gemini in July 2009, was refurbished by the Gemini engineering team, and returned to commissioning in December 2011. In February 2012, the instrument's large collimator was found cracked. This lens and its holder have been replaced.

As the US government goes into its second week of shutdown, Gemini Observatory remains solvent with operational funds secure until at least the end of October. Beyond that timeframe we are actively pursuing, and are confident that we will identify, alternate methods to assure sufficient operational funding to continue all functions of the observatory until the government shutdown is resolved.
