Al/Ca/Mg-Ne lamp

This lamp was originally acquired for the wavelength calibration of TAURUS data. The spectrum contains, apart from the NeI features, a large number of multiplets of CaI, MgI and AlI, which dominate the blue spectral range. In the far red, some of these multiplets neatly fill gaps between the NeI lines. This lamp is useful at high dispersion CCD work in narrow selected regions.
