High-Resolution Spectrum of G333.6-0.2 around 12.8μm

Reproduction of a high-resolution spectrum of the Ne II line (ionised Neon) at 12.8135 μm of the star-forming region G333.6-0.2. This spectrum reveals the complex motions of the ionized gas in this region. The images are 256 x 256 frames of 50 x 50 micron pixels. The "field" direction is horizontal, with total slit length of 32.5 arcsec; North is left and South is to the right. The dispersion direction is vertical, with the wavelength increasing downward. The total integration time was 80 sec.
