Paper Abstract

Since 2009 the Echelle spectrograph FOCES1 is located at the laboratories of Munich University Observatories under pressure and temperature stabilized conditions. It is intended to be operated at the 2.0m Fraunhofer Telescope at the Wendelstein Observatory and it will remain under lab conditions in Munich until the telescope is fully commissioned. This has given us the unique opportunity to use FOCES as a test bed for a number of different stability issues related to high precision radial velocity spectroscopy, in particular to study spectrograph stability, illumination stability and fiber transport stability. In this paper will be presented the final optical measurement results to test temperature and pressure stabilization in the spectrograph environment with respect to simulations requirements previously published. Using measurements done by a ThAr gas discharge source, we tested the stability of our system by direct 1D spectra analysis and we verified the movement of the spot positions by changing the CCD temperature in the stabilized environment.
