HSRED Version 2.0 ReleasedLeave a Comment
We are pleased to release version 2.0 of HSRED, a reduction package for Hectospec data. This update incorporates a number of significant improvements provided by the Telescope Data Center at SAO. Key changes include new support for the 600-line grating, fine-tuning the wavelength calibration, improved cosmic ray rejection and sky subtraction, support for offset sky observations, a model correction for the red light leak present in Hectospec data, and automatic correction for the A- and B-band telluric lines. Information about the package can be found on the HSRED page.
