A set of baseline calibrations will be taken for all Gemini queue observations in order to ensure the long-term utility of the data in the archive. This baseline calibration set varies from mode to mode, but includes all the data deemed necessary to produce scientifically useful data.
Baseline calibrations include:
- GCAL flat field
- GCAL ThAr arc
- Flux standard star
To reach the desired instrument performance GPI is constrained both in the suitable weather conditions and the elevation of the target being observed.
Overview of TEXES' Capabilities
TEXES, the Texas Echelon Cross Echelle Spectrograph is a high resolution (R ~ 4,000-100,000) mid-infrared (5-25 micron) spectrometer, which was first offered at Gemini North as a visitor instrument in Semester 2006B.
See the Status and Availability page for important information on using TEXES at Gemini.
Director's Discretionary (DD) and Poor Weather (PW) proposals must use the 2015A PIT. See the PIT Version Table for more information and download links.
Gemini North is now accepting proposals for the first cycle of the Fast Turnaround (FT) pilot program
Gemini North is now accepting proposals for the first cycle of the Fast Turnaround (FT) pilot program. Here, we give information specific to this proposal cycle. Please see the other FT pages - particularly the rules - for general information about the program.
