CAFE: Signal-to-noise ratio for different observed objects

Table shows the results of the S/N analysis, for all the targets observed along the commisioning run, including the date, the name of the target, the V-band magnitude and the S/N at the average wavelength of this band (~5500AA). These results can be directly compared with the ones derived for FOCES. We highlight here the results derived for the G5 star with V-band magnitude of 6.9 mag, derived with FOCES, obtaining a S/N~41 for a exposure time of 60 sec. This can be compared with the result we obtain for HF151541, with CAFE, a V~7.1 mag star, for which we obtain a S/N~68 for with a exposure time of 60 sec. The fainest object listed in the FOCES signal webpage, is a 0p star with a luminosity of V~10.5 mag, for which it was obtained a spectra with a S/N~25 with a exposure time of 600 seconds. A similar star, BD+25d4655, V~10.6 mag, was observed with CAFE, for which we obtained a spectrum with a S/N~45, for with a similar exposure time (t_exp~ 600 sec).




CAFE: Two examples of the spectra and S/N derived for a bright (V~7 mag) and a faint (V~14.5 mag) star, with similar spectral features at the considered wavelength range (order 97).
