It is possible to see fringing on the detector at about the one percent level in spectra taken with the medium resolution grating. The fringes can be partially removed by taking flats immediately after the observations and/or by observing a telluric standard in the same place on the array as the science target. If neither of these strategies were employed, then fringing is difficult to remove.
