The STD stars are not from an homogenous set
If an outlier is detected, this could be a problem with atmospheric conditions or a known instrumental issue,
- atmospheric conditions or know instrumental issues should be indicated in the NR
- after analysis by QC (this could take a few days), the reason will be visible under "scores&comments", if this is a false alert (object too faint for ex.), the QC scientist will force the flag to become green
NOTE: Large negative outliers in the delta FWHM values of the Delta_IQ plot are the result of a missing DIMM keyword in the STD image.

This plot

These are the trending plots for the SINFONI QC parameters defined for the image quality as measured for the telluric standard stars
(J-band / all pixel scales).

Plot #1 is a one-to-one comparison of the image quality achieved by SINFONI and the seeing as measured by the DIMM site-monitor. The DIMM seeing has been adjusted to the wavelength and airmass of the standard star observation. The image quality (IQ) plot shows the FWHM of the STD star and the corrected DIMM plotted against one another. CLOSED loop (AO) observations are plotted as solid circles, while OPEN loop (non-AO) observations are shown as open circles.

Plot #2 shows Delta_IQ = sinfoni telluric standard star FWHM - DIMM seeing for all observations with SINFONI in CLOSED loop mode.
This parameter is scored.

Plot #3 shows Delta_IQ = sinfoni telluric standard star FWHM - DIMM seeing for all observations with SINFONI in OPEN loop mode.
This parameter is scored.

NOTE: The conversion from pixels to arcsec for the image FWHM takes into account the fact that the reconstructed SINFONI cube has rectangular pixels. The reconstructed pixels are such that on-sky Delta_X = 0.5*Delta_Y.
The correct conversion, in terms of the source position angle (PA), is given by:
SINFONI FWHM computation

the pixel_scale is given by the keyword INS.OPTI1.NAME.

General information

Click on any of the plots to see a close-up version. The latest date is indicated on top of the plot, data points belonging to that date are specially marked.

If configured,

  • statistical averages are indicated by a solid line, and thresholds by broken lines
  • outliers are marked by a red asterisk. They are defined as data points outside the threshold lines
  • "aliens" (= data points outside the plot Y limits) are marked by a red arrow ( or )
  • you can download the data for each parameter set if the 'Data downloads' link shows up
