Exposure Time Calculator

A user-interface, based on the `SIGNAL' programme developed at the ING has been installed and commissioned to estimate required exposure times. It provides signal-to-noise calculations for imaging with ALFOSC, MOSCA and NOTCam in Wide-Field and High-resolution mode, and for spectroscopy with ALFOSC.
