Proposing and processing MEGARA observations with GTC

  Start date: 19/09/2017

  End date: 22/09/2017

Meeting place: Anfiteatro Julio Palacios (M2), Facultad de CC. Físicas, Universidad Complutense de Madrid

Organizer: Armando Gil de Paz

Rationale:

MEGARA is the new integral-field and multi-object spectrograph for GTC, that will provide the telescope with an unprecedented combination of efficiency and spectral resolution (R=6000-20000) in the entire optical window.
During this meeting, the participants will hear about the main characteristics of the instrument, which is already installed at GTC, and its on-sky performance according to the latest commissioning results. All participants will have also the chance to present the science they plan to carry out with MEGARA, either as a contributed talk or a as porter. During the second half of the meeting, they will also learn on the MEGARA observing preparation tools (ETC, MOS configurator and Phase 2 tool) and on the data processing and quick analysis tools (Data Reduction Pipeline and Quicklook, respectively), which will be installed and executed throughout a total of three hands-on sessions.
