Auxiliary data include catalogues with comparison lines and tables with the fluxes of some standard stars.
The area MID_ARC contains the following calibration catalogues, thar.tbl, Thorium-Argon catalogue (for CASPEC, ECHELLEC, EMMI). hear.tbl, Helium-Argon catalogue (for EFOSC). as well as Th-Ar tables selected for blends at spectral resolutions 25000, 33000, 50000, 100000, respectively named thar25.tbl, thar50.tbl, thar50.tbl, thar100.tbl (these tables have been prepared by H.Hensberge, M.David and W.Verschueren from Antwerp University).
Standard stars for flux calibration are available in the area MID_STANDARD. Additional tables of southern spectrophotometric standards are available in /midas/calib/data/spec/ctio (Hamuy & al., 1992, PASP, 104 533-552 and Hamuy & al., 1994, PASP 106 566-589) and midas/calib/data/datatrans/hststd (HST Standards).
These tables are distributed
on request in complement to the Midas releases. These tables are
also available on anonymous ftp at the host ftphost.hq.eso.org
(IP number 188.8.131.52). The files to be retrieved are located
in the directory /midaspub/calib and are named README.calib and
calib.tar.Z. Command SHOW/TABLE can be used to visualize the
column name and physical units of the tables. Demonstration
data required to execute the tutorial
procedure TUTORIAL/ECHELLE are also located on this ftp
server in the directory /midaspub/demo as echelle.tar.Z. FTP access
is also provided on the World Wide Web URL:
