ELT Imaging Exposure Time Calculator
There are two ELT ETCs: Imaging and Spectroscopy.
Both are generic Exposure Time Calculators, which can be used to simulate different instrument setups.
The interface allows to set the simulation parameters and examine interactively the model generated graphs. The ETC programs allow easy comparison
of the different options relevant to an observing program and instrument development, including target information, instrument configuration, variable atmospheric conditions and observing parameters.
Please refer to these PDF documents:
- Version 6.4.0 (November 11, 2019)
Corrected a serious bug which prevented the ELT ETCs to execute properly.
- Version 6.2.3 (October 30, 2017)
Bugfix in the ELT Spectroscopy ETC: The object spectrum is now the individual spectrum per spaxel in order to consistently check for saturation.
- Version 6.2.2 (February 27, 2017)
Version number aligned to 6.2.2 for generic ELT ETCs and ETCs currently in development. Imaging: Sky magnitudes updated in the documentation
- Version 6.1.0 (July 04, 2016)
Imaging: UBVRI sky magnitudes updated.
