Performance of cross-dispersion option

The wavelength coverage provided by the cross dispersion option depends on the physical size of the detector. The current generation of large format CCD detectors (the EEV CCD has dimensions of 25.9 by 27.9 mm) are capable of covering the wavelength range in one exposure.
