CFHT Coudé Comparison Arc
Spectral Atlases

HTML version created by David Bohlender

This spectral atlas consists of data acquired with the decommissioned coudé f/8.2 spectrograph. The resolution you can expect with Gecko is higher by a factor of approximately four. Note also that at the moment the plotting routine is guaranteed to work for wavelength ranges of a few 100Å only, but this is more than enough for Gecko purposes.

NOTE: if you are using the French mirror site and are experiencing difficulties with this atlas, please try the Atlas on the CFHT Web site.
