Table information for ''


This table is available for ADQL queries and through the TAP endpoint.

Resource Description: Spectra from the Flash and Heros Echelle spectrographs developed at Landessternwarte Heidelberg and mounted at La Silla and various other observatories. The data mostly contains spectra of OB stars. Heros was the name of the instrument after Flash got a second channel in 1995.

Citing this table

This table has an associated publication. If you use data from it, it may be appropriate to reference 1996A&A...312..539S (ADS BibTeX entry for the publication) either in addition to or instead of the service reference.

To cite the table as such, we suggest the following BibTeX entry:

  title={Flash/Heros Heidelberg spectra},
  author={Wolf, B. and Kaufer, A. and Mandel, H. and Stahl, O.},
  howpublished={{VO} resource provided by the {GAVO} Data Center},
  doi = {10.21938/oUuqajnWmofP2w75.Acc8g}
