9 August 2016 Commissioning SITELLE: an imaging Fourier transform spectrometer for the Canada France Hawaii Telescope
Author Affiliations +
The SITELLE Imaging Fourier Transform Spectrometer was successfully commissioned at the Canada France Hawaii Telescope starting in July 2015. Here we discuss the commissioning process, the outcome of the early tests on-sky as well as the ensuing work to optimize the modulation efficiency at large optical path difference and the image quality of the instrument.
