PRIMA Specific Tools

  • APES: Astrometric observation Preparation Software,
    For the preparation of narrow angle astrometric observations using PRIMA and the Auxiliary Telescopes (ATs). It allows to simulate the performance of the instrument for a given set of targets and reference stars.

VLTI Tools and information

ESO has developed a suite of tools to help you to prepare proposals for the VLT interferometric instruments (AMBER, MIDI):

  • VisCalc, the visibility vs. (u,v)-plane coverage calculator.
  • CalVin, the online catalog of interferometric calibrator-stars.
