SALT RSS

This page contains a growing arc atlas for SALT RSS and some useful data reduction tips.

Arc line identifications

The following archives contain line identification plots (made with IRAF’s identify task) and linelists. I’ll add more to the list as I come across them in my own work. Please contact me if you have any special requests.

Slides from the SALT data reduction workshop (Feb 1-3, 2017). If you’d like me to make some code available, please let me know. The main point is to give an overview of my approach to reducing large amounts of data.
