This file summarizes several instrument specific items for the SOAR/Goodman spectrograph.
Note that there are two ways to download your data from the archive:
in .fits format – these have been pre-processed and are not PypeIt compliant
in .fits.fz format – these are the raw frames from the telescope
PypeIt will only work with the .fz format, so please ensure that you are only using data in this format.
We recommend downloading the data from here: https://archive.lco.global/
