Calibration Plan

Within the reduction cascade, all calibration products are checked with respect to their quality and their relationship in time. This means e.g. that a master flat is generated using a quality-checked Master Bias, which is taken closest in time to the raw data for the master flat field.

All products created by QC Garching follow the reduction cascade. The reduction cascades for daytime calibration and nighttime observations (standard stars and science data) are shown below.

The operational XSHOOTER association maps for the three arms UVB, VIS and NIR and the two modes SLIT and IFU are shown here. The association maps include also that for the Acquisition and Guiding Camera (AGC, imaging mode) calibration plan..
