CSP NIR Filters Now Available

NIR filters as determined by the TAMU group.

Thanks to a group of Texas A & M astronomers including Jean-Philippe Rheault, Jennifer Marshall, Darren Depoy, and Steven Villanueva, three of the CSP filter functions in the NIR, Y-, J-, and H-band, have been accurately scanned.  These filter functions represent the throughput of all optical components of the telescope, dewars, and filters.  Empirical functions for the atmospheric absorption are then incorporated to produce the final functions.  All CSP filter, including these new scans, can be found here.
