XSHOOTER Documentation

In this page, you will find all the manuals needed to prepare and analyze your observations with XSHOOTER. 

  • Please, see the XSHOOTER article by Vernet et al. 2011. This article should be cited if you publish based on XSHOOTER data.
  • One can find here a document describing the NIR readout mode and its different regimes (normal, inter/extrapolated, saturated).
  • There was a problem with a wavelength shift between the XSHOOTER arms. A document prepared by S. Moehler explains their physical and pipeline origins as well as the corrective actions taken.
