Calibration facilities

The spectrograph is interfaced to the telescope through the JKT `Ellis' Cassegrain acquisition unit, where the calibration sources are housed (see Section gif). Cu-Ar and Cu-Ne hollow-cathode lamps are available for wavelength comparison, and a tungsten filament lamp as a source of white light.
