CalVin 3 - A New Release of the ESO Calibrator Selection Tool for the VLT Interferometer
2011 (English)In: The Messenger, Vol. 145, 7-9 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Interferometric observations require frequent measurements of calibration stars of known diameter to estimate the instrumental transfer function. ESO offers the preparation tool CalVin to select suitable calibrators from an underlying list of calibrators. The latest version 3, first released in January 2011, offers major improvements in the number of available calibrators, the functionality of the search tool, as well as in terms of performance and ease of use. It has been developed in a collaboration between ESO and the French Jean-Marie Mariotti Center (JMMC).
