Input Flux Distribution

 Uniform (constant with wavelength)
 Blackbody: T =		 Kelvin
 Template Spectra:	  Redshift Z = 

Object Magnitude:    Band:
Magnitudes are given per square arcsec for extended sources. Note that some template spectra are 
defined over a limited wavelength range and may not allow calculations for all instrument configurations.
The object magnitude is not taken into account for the following single line source. Single line Wavelength: nm Flux: 10E-16 ergs/s/cm2 (per arcsec2 for extended sources) FWHM: nm (Minimum value: 0.50) Spatial Distribution: Point Source Extended Source
