Gemini Frontier Field: First Data Now Available

Figure 1. Part of MACS J0416-2403 seen by GSAOI. The average angular resolution is about 80 milliarcseconds, the full field-of-view of the data released is nearly twice as large as shown here.

GMMPS for Hamamatsu CCDs available

The latest version of the Gemini MOS Mask Preparation Software (GMMPS 0.4.1) is now available. Please see the GMMPS web page for more information and download links.

Calibration

Calibrations for GNIRS consist of the following measurements.

GMOS-S Gain and Read Noise Values

The table below gives gain/read-noise values for the current GMOS Hamamatsu CCDs measured in September 2014.

Note: GMOS South data obtained before May 19, 2014 should use the previous gain/read-noise values.
