CAOS participated in the “Spektroskopietagung” organized by ASPA- “Aktive Spektroskopie in der Astronomie” that took placed in Bebra (Germany) last May 7-9 2010, with a workshop of 4 hours where we presented our latest breadboard Echelle spectrograph FLECHAS (Fiber Linked ECHelle Astronomical Spectrograph).
The workshop described the complete process of integration and alignment of an Echelle spectrograph assembled on a commercial breadboard. We presented the optical design, efficiency and a preliminary data reduction as well. This data reduction included only wavelength calibration of the instrument.
The Power-Point presentation has been completed with some notes and comments and it is now available for download (PDF format):
The workshop was also filmed -except the last half hour- and the videos are available at (heavy files!)

The rest of the article will be dedicated to describe the optical components and their assemblies in modules.

At Aspekt 2017, St. Niklausen (Switzerland) we presented another workshop where we described how tow measure the throughput in spectrographs. PDF
