X-shooter Reference Spectra Available

X-shooter reference spectrum for EG 274

Reference spectra for six southern spectrophotometric standard stars observed with X-shooter are now available and the tables can be downloaded. The flux distribution over the full X-shooter range 3000 – 25000Å is tabulated.

Selection and empirical correction of the model spectra are fully described in Moehler et al. (2014) and in a Messenger article. The fluxes are sampled (at 0.1Å [< 10000Å] and 0.2Å [>10000Å]) and separate files are available for flux and AB mag. Further information can be found on the Optical and UV Spectrophotometric Standard Star pages.
