Release of FEROS Science Data Products

Published: 07 Nov 2016
FEROS echelle spectrum of Eta Carinae

Pipeline processed FEROS echelle data, covering the period November 2003 to the present, are now available as Science Data Products via the Phase 3 main and spectral query forms. The data consist of extracted 1D spectra in the ESO/SDP format and tar files containing the output of the FEROS pipeline.

All FEROS data from November 2003 to now have been reprocessed with the latest version of the FEROS Data Reduction System. Future data will be reprocessed using the same pipeline setup and added to the release in regular intervals. Note that most of the new data is protected and, for the duration of the proprietary period, is only accessible by the PIs and their delegates.

The format and content of the FEROS 1D data is described in more detail in the release notes. Instructions on how to read or display data in the ESO/SDP tabular data format can be found in the 1D spectrum data format help page.
