Getting Data and Reducing Them

[December 2004]: Science verification data are available for the August, October and December run through the ESO archive (select as instrument SINFONI).

A very preliminary data reduction pipeline is available. If you are interested in using it (at your own risk), please contact Markus Kissler-Patig
For users of this pipeline: consult the draft pipeline FAQ pages.
