Hamilton Day-Sky Spectrum

  • Due to scaling and display limitations, wavelengths blueward of about ####A are not visible in this day-sky image.
  • The exposure was made with the unthinned CCD in dewar #8 which does not exhibit fringing effects; the concentric ellipses are a display artifact and not in the data.
  • Note that the image is shown here as it appears in the data-taker's image display, with the row-column origin (0,0) at upper left. Many displays programs put the origin at lower left.
  • The dark vertical strip on the right is the CCD's overscan region.
  • m = order number (Spectral features may appear in two adjacent orders, as in the case of H-beta above.)
