IRCS echelle orders

The configuration of the IRCS echelle is adjustable to most user requirements. The following tables list `standard' configurations which should satisfy most applicants.

Go to: zJ, J, H, K, L

zJ-band: orders 48-55

The zJ setting of the echelle provides continuous wavelength coverage from 1.0146 - 1.1912 um.
