Calibration plan

A general calibration plan was drafted to monitor the performance of the telescope, instrument and their detectors. This incorporates the zeropoint monitoring for the optical imaging instruments (ALFOSC, MOSCA and StanCam) which is now regularly carried-out and can be a valuable tool in defining the best strategy in cleaning the mirrors. The overall calibration plan is currently being reviewed.
