SCIENCE DATA: GENERAL

On Paranal, the quick-look pipelines make an effort to automatically reduce all science data. The reduction is performed using standard calibration solutions from a local calibration database which is refreshed every few months. Generally any pipeline processing on the site is done on a best-effort basis. Its purpose is to offer a quick look to assess data quality etc.

Until the end of P87 (September 2011), science data were processed by QC Garching with the best possible (certified) calibrations solutions. The products were ingested into the Science Archive and delivered to the PIs. This service has been terminated with the begin of October 2011.

For some instruments, science-grade data products are created by QC Garching, using certified pipelines. Currently these are 1D spectral data products from UVES (Echelle mode), XSHOOTER (Echelle mode), and GIRAFFE (Medusa MOS modes). See the QC pages for those instruments for more information.

NACO INFORMATION

The NACO pipeline is designed to reduce some types of the raw science data. Please, be aware that the adopted reduction strategy may not be suitable for some particular scientific purposes.

The following types of the NACO raw science data are NOT supported by the pipeline (situation for P86and later). Not all of the science modes have been used after 2015-01 (after the detector upgrade). Science raw frame screen shots shown in the following pages are from observations earlier than 2015-01 (before the detector upgrade):

RAW SCIENCE DATA

The following types of NACO raw science data are supported by the pipeline:
