An advanced almanac is available in the ESO SkyCalc sky model calculator
Override almanac sky parameters and use instead typical fixed sky model parameters except Moon phase and airmass
Moon FLI: Airmass:
PWV:     mm         Probability % of realising the PWV ≤ 10.00 mm
Seeing/Image Quality:
Seeing: arcsec FWHM in V-band at zenith (use this value in the proposal)
              Probability ---% of realising the seeing ≤ 1.00 arcsec
IQ: arcsec FWHM at the airmass and wavelength of observation (to be used for the OB constraint set)
              The corresponding seeing and probability will be indicated in the ETC output page
Image Quality is not a parameter in AO modes

Instrument Setup

Grating: Range to plot: - nm
Reference wavelength: nm   The numeric results will refer to this wavelength.

Results

S/N ratio: S/N = DIT = s
Exposure Time: NDIT =

The total exposure time is the product of DIT (Detector Integration Time) by NDIT (number of DITs). Instrument and telescope overheads are not taken into account.
