HRC G800L aXe products

To use these calibration products with aXe, copy them into a directory and set your AXE_CONFIG_PATH environment variable to point to that directory.

Important Notes:

These calibration products are meant to be used together. The HRC sensitivity files available here are valid for extracted spectra which have been flat-fielded using the included flat-fielding cube.
Information about the flat-fielding can be found at http://xxx.lanl.gov/abs/astro-ph/0212021.
Information about the field dependence and wavelength calibration can be found here

The aXe pages contain the latest version of aXe as well as sample test data and a sample script to perform the extraction
