GMOS-S Recommissioning Continues

February 12, 2024

Although commissioning is not complete and data reduction releases are not yet available following the cybersecurity incident, we have opted to allow data collection with the new GMOS-S detectors as soon as they are ready in order to minimize further on-sky losses. Hence, all of the GMOS-S modes have now been released to take science data. MOS mask pre-imaging processing has begun but we have yet to verify the mask-cutting transformation so a new mask design is not yet possible. We anticipate offering a provisional package enabling limited data reduction capabilities as soon as we have collected all the necessary information. We appreciate the understanding and patience of those with GMOS-S data.
