Paper Abstract

At the Canada-France-Hawaii Telescope (CFHT) recent gains in Spectrographic capability has pointed out the need for a telescope-mounted Spectral Calibration Source that has three features: (1) A precise simulated pupil image, (2) Emission lines from .36 microns to 2.5 microns, (3) High throughput in the infrared. This paper describes the CFHT f/8 focus and then describes the Spectrographs and the Spectral Calibration Source (SCS) that use this focus.
