General news: NOTE: The Health Check and calChecker services are moved to qcFlow on an instrument by instrument basis. The current pages will not be updated any longer once the move has been finished.
The links to KMOS, UVES, and ESPRESSO have been moved to a new section (qcFlow operational) at the lower part of the navigation bar.

SPHERE consists of the common path infrastructure (CPI, providing AO and coronograph) and three arms:
IRDIS (with four modes), i
IFS, and
ZIMPOL (with three modes).

The following IRDIS data types are checked:

  • IRD_SCI_CLI, classical imaging,
  • IRD_SCI_DBI, differential beam imaging,
  • IRD_SCI_DPI, dual beam polarimetric imaging and
  • IRD_SCI_LSS, long slit spectroscopy
The setup keys are:

  • the CPI neutral density filter (e.g. OPEN or ND_1.0),
  • the common broad band filter (e.g. B_H),
  • the pupil stop,
  • the dual beam filter (e.g. D_H23) and
  • the DIT.

The only one IFS data type is checked:

  • IFS_SCI, integral field spectroscopy
The setup keys for IFS are: the CPI neutral density filter (e.g. OPEN or ND_1.0), the prism (YJ or YJH) and the DIT.

The following ZIMPOL data types are checked:

  • ZPL_SCI_IMG, imaging
  • ZPL_SCI_P1, polarimetry, field stabilized (the spider rotates when observing)
  • ZPL_SCI_P2, polarimetry, pupil stabilized (the sky rotates when observing)
The setup keys for ZIMPOL are:
  • the common beam filter (INS3.OPTI2.NAME),
  • the beam1 filter (INS3.OPTI5.NAME),
  • the beam2 filter (INS3.OPTI6.NAME) and
  • the readmode.

calChecker supports fuzzy matches:
ZIMPOL observations acquired with a non-broad-band-filter setup (= any filter which is not N_R, N_I and V) is checked for having a modemeff calibration and a distortion frame with the closest in wavelength broad-band filter.

Attached science frames (DPR.CATG=SCIENCE with DPR.TYPE=OBJECT,FLUX or OBJECT,CENTER or SKY) are not checked for the completeness of calibrations.

Acquisition of long term calibrations like photometric, astrometric or polarimetric standard stars is monitored via long-term calChecker.
