Input Flux Distribution

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

Object Magnitude:    Band: Vega  AB

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: 10-16 ergs/s/cm2 (per arcsec2 for extended sources) FWHM: nm (Minimum value: 0.50) Spatial Distribution: Point Source Extended Source

Sky Conditions

Moon phase: days from new Moon
Airmass:
Seeing: arcsec FWHM in V-band at zenith (use this value in the proposal). The seeing is irrelevant for extended sources.
Probability 60% for a seeing smaller or equal to the requested value
For point sources, the resulting Image Quality FWHM is modeled by the ETC considering the transfer functions of the atmosphere, telescope and instrument. For details see the helpfile.

Instrumental Setup

Telescope throughput (2 aluminium coated mirrors): 65.00% at 670 nm
Filter: 			
Detector: Readout mode:		  Binning:  pixels
