Dan Kelson has put together a large set of routines for reducing
data from a number of astronomical instruments. Though there is
support for MIKE, the ESI like instrument at Magellan, this package
is most easily used for reducing lower resolution data, of both the
single and multi-slit variety.
Installation is straightforward. In the current form, there are
versions built for INTEL linux boxes and Macintosh G5s. In the
future, there will be a more generic install process, allowing the
user to build the software for their architecture. Otherwise, the
package contains all of the software the user needs, including a
python installation, supporting libraries, tools for plotting, etc.
Go to the Start
This package is more complicated to use than many of the turnkey
pipelines written for Keck instruments. There will be a more
detailed discussion on an instrument by instrument basis of how to
reduce data with this package.
