 the science we proposed was to monitor a source in X-rays and in the optical,
taken spectra with the OM using the GRISM
 while observing with EPIC MOS/PN and RGS. Unfortunately, we don't know what the
status of calibration of the grism is 
 nor how to analyze these GRISM data (i.e. is it supported by the current SAS or
are there other software packages
 available for the data analysis of the GRISM data).

 We would appreciate your suggestions on how to analyze these OM Data.

 With best regards,

   Werner Becker

Dear Dr. Becker,

The current SAS version does not support the processing of OM grism data. 

Work is in progress, and a new task (omgchain) will be included in the new SAS
release, planned for the first quarter of 2004.

Regards,

Dear  Rosario Gonzalez-Riestra,

 many thanks for your reply. We wonder if it would be worth to contact the
person who is developing
the software. At MPE we have the developer track version of SAS running, i.e. I
would like to know
if it would be worth to play with this talk in the DT version? and what is the
software able to do at the
current status (and what not).


Thanks one more for your help,

Werner Becker

Dear Dr. Becker,

I am afraid that due to the limited manpower we cannot provide support
on the SAS development versions.

Currently, our OM Grism specialist is on sick leave, and he will not
be back until beginning of December at least. 

Anyway, if you try the software and have any specific question, I'll
forward it to him, so that he answers as soon as he comes back.

Regards,


                Rosario
