FREE The NAOS-PS will try to find an optimal Dicroic/WFS combination. Note
Grism/Filter Mode:
Instrument mode : (select Double_RdRstRd for LW).


S/N ratio: S/N = DIT = sec Please note the relevant minimum DIT in the manual.
Exposure Time: NDIT =

The total exposure time is the product of DIT (Detector Integration Time) by NDIT (number of DITs). This exposure time does not take into account instrument and telescope overheads.
