     package includes a README file, the set of midas
    procedures and a set of master calibration frames. The user
     manuals are still in a draft form and have not been
     approved officially by the Instrument Scientists.

 How to Order

The CD-ROM is available to everyone interested in
the ESO-MIDAS. Research Institutes can order the CD-ROM
directly from the ESO-MIDAS Group by filling out the
ESO-MIDAS Problem Reporting Form
(please choose category distribution)
on the web page:


or just by sending an email to midas@eso.org. Others are kindly
invited to contact the Education and Public Relations
Department (e-mail: ips@eso.org).

To remind you, the ESO-MIDAS products contained
on the CD-ROM, are available via our anonymous ftp server:
ftp://ftphost.hq.eso.org/midaspub. The ftp services include
regular patches and updates of ESO-MIDAS.

Demonstration data files for the UVES reduction package are
not included on the Midas CD due to their size (approx. 400 MB).
On request ESO will provide you with a CD-ROM containing
these data.
