Observing Programs at Keck Observatory with HIRESr on May 13, 2015 for Prochaska + Associates

This page organizes all of the projects for HIRES on April 13, 2015. Each program page should include:

  1. The optimal setup for the observation
  2. A target list with finder charts and recommended exposure times
  3. Any additional notes of interest (S/N desired, priority of targets)
  4. Worst conditions (seeing, clouds) under which observations will still be useful.

Setups

All setups in nominal 2x1 (spatial x spectral) binning. All setups require 2 arcs, 5-10 flats, arc either before or after a series of 2 exposures on sky

Standard stars not needed (unless R. Cooke needs them)

Setup 1 E4 (or B2) Decker Echang: 0.0 XDangl: 1.00

Setup 2 C1 Dekcer Echang: -0.216 XDang = 0.209 Filter: kv370 (Please verify that z=0.0 CaII and NaI are on chip!)

Setup 3 C1 Decker Echang: -0.0549 XDang = 0.3555 Filter: kv380
