The onedstds$ directory contains standard calibration data for extinction and
sensitivity calibration as used in the ONEDSPEC, TWODSPEC, and the various
IMRED packages.


                            EXTINCTION TABLES
                (eg extinction = onedstds$kpnoextinct.dat)

ctioextinct.dat -  CTIO extinction table for ONEDSPEC (in Angstroms)
    The CTIO extinction curve distributed with IRAF comes from the work of
    Stone & Baldwin (1983 MN 204, 347) and Baldwin & Stone (1984 MN 206,
    241).  The first of these papers lists the points from 3200-8370A while
    the second extended the flux calibration from 6056 to 10870A but the
    derived extinction curve was not given in the paper.  The IRAF table
    follows SB83 out to 6436, the redder points presumably come from BS84
    with averages used in the overlap region.

    More recent CTIO extinction curves are shown as Figures in Hamuy 
    et al (92, PASP 104, 533 ; 94 PASP 106, 566).

                              MISCELLANEOUS

           ctio -  Directory containing CTIO decker comb positions and
                   neutral density filter curves (used with NDPREP).

                           FLUX STANDARD DIRECTORIES
                        (eg caldir = onedstds$iidscal/)

      blackbody -  Directory for using blackbody flux distributions in
		   various magnitude bands.
       bstdscal -  Directory of the brighter KPNO IRS standards (i.e. those 
                   with HR numbers) at 29 bandpasses, data from various
                   sources transformed to the Hayes and Latham system,
                   unpublished.
        ctiocal -  Directory containing fluxes for the southern tertiary
                   standards as published by Baldwin & Stone, 1984, MNRAS,
                   206, 241 and Stone and Baldwin, 1983, MNRAS, 204, 347.
     ctionewcal -  Directory containing fluxes at 50A steps in the blue range
                   3300-7550A for the tertiary standards of Baldwin and
                   Stone derived from the revised calibration of Hamuy et
                   al., 1992, PASP, 104, 533.  This directory also contains
                   the fluxes of the tertiaries in the red (6050-10000A) at
                   50A steps as will be published in PASP (Hamuy et al
                   1994).  The combined fluxes are obtained by gray
                   shifting the blue fluxes to match the red fluxes in the
                   overlap region of 6500A-7500A and averaging the red and
                   blue fluxes in the overlap.  The separate red and blue
                   fluxes may be selected by following the star name with
                   "red" or "blue"; i.e. CD 32 blue.
        iidscal -  Directory of the KPNO IIDS standards at 29 bandpasses,
                   data from various sources transformed to the Hayes and 
                   Latham system, unpublished.
         irscal -  Directory of the KPNO IRS standards at 78 bandpasses,
                   data from various sources transformed to the Hayes and  
                   Latham system, unpublished (note that in this directory the 
                   brighter standards have no values - the `bstdscal' directory
                   must be used for these standards at this time).
        oke1990 -  Directory of spectrophotometric standards observed for use 
                   with the HST, Table VII, Oke 1990, AJ, 99. 1621 (no 
                   correction was applied).  An arbitrary 1A bandpass
                   is specified for these smoothed and interpolated
                   flux "points".  Users may copy and modify these files
                   for other bandpasses.
         redcal -  Directory of standard stars with flux data beyond 8370A.
                   These stars are from the IRS or the IIDS directory but
                   have data extending as far out into the red as the
                   literature permits.  Data from various sources.   
   spechayescal -  The KPNO spectrophotometric standards at the Hayes flux
                   points, Table IV, Spectrophotometric Standards, Massey
                   et al., 1988, ApJ 328, p. 315.
      spec16cal -  Directory containing fluxes at 16A steps in the blue
                   range 3300-7550A for the secondary standards, published
                   in Hamuy et al., 1992, PASP, 104, 533.  This directory
                   also contains the fluxes of the secondaries in the red
                   (6020-10300A) at 16A steps as will be published in PASP
                   (Hamuy et al 1994).  The combined fluxes are obtained by
                   gray shifting the blue fluxes to match the red fluxes in
                   the overlap region of 6500A-7500A and averaging the blue
                   and red fluxes in the overlap.  The separate red and
                   blue fluxes may be selected by following the star name
                   with "red" or "blue"; i.e. HR 1544 blue.
      spec50cal -  The KPNO spectrophotometric standards at 50 A intervals.
                   The data are from (1) Table V, Spectrophotometric Standards,
                   Massey et al., 1988, ApJ 328, p. 315 and (2) Table 3, The
                   Kitt Peak Spectrophotometric Standards: Extension to 1
                   micron, Massey and Gronwall, 1990, ApJ 358, p. 344.
