Newly released MATISSE commissioning data of NGC 1068

Published: 03 Apr 2020

During the commissioning runs of MATISSE at VLTI in the second half of 2018 several astronomical targets were observed, in order to assess the scientific capabilities of the instrument and to optimise the observing strategies. This page provides links to selected data obtained during those runs, for both science and calibration targets.

Data obtained during those runs can be used as a reference for planning future observations and also possibly for scientific work. However, it needs to be noted that the data obtained during commissioning runs, when instrument setup and software are tested, may have some limitations. The observing times may not be optimal, the file headers may be incomplete and not homogenous, etc.
