Quick CalVin instructions
Select instrument, then right-click link to Simbad Web App to open Simbad in another window.
There you query for the coordinates of your science target,
and cut and paste the coordinates into the CalVin application.
For the observation setup, just select a time span of 24 hours and then submit the request.
Confirm your input on the next page, and you will be presented a list of calibrators selected
from the CalVin database.
Later, after browsing through the list and selecting a suitable candidate, run CalVin again
with the proper observational setup to make sure the calibrator is observable.
