Additional recommendations


Keep abreast of FLAIR developments by reading the latest AAO newsletters, STARLINK news items and PATT newsletters. Please contact either Dr.Q.A Parker at the UKST or Mr.M Read at the Royal Observatory Edinburgh if you have any queries or concerns associated with the run.
Vital information concerning the latest state of the system may be given which could have a bearing on the observational strategy intended.

Request copies of the FLAIR manual (User Guide) for useful background reading.
The information contained therein should give an overall impression of the facility and what is required. Hence once on site, training etc will be easier and more straightforward.

In summary FLAIR is an extremely powerful wide field spectroscopic facility that is excellent for survey or one-off special field projects. However to get the most from the system and to make any run as trouble free as possible it is well advised to become familiar with the documentation and to ask advice from staff at the UKST or ROE.
