ASPID - the observational data archive containing results of observations conducted by the laboratory team on the 6-m Telescope (begginning from 31.12.1989). It includes observational data obtained with Integral Field Spectrograph (MPFS), Multi Object Fiber Spectrograph (MOFS), 'Long Slit Spectrograph' (LS), Fabry-Perrot Interferometer (old focal reducer till 2000 yr) and BTA Optical Reducer (SCORPIO). Description of the instruments could be found on laboratory homepage. Observational data presented in ASPID obtained on the 6-m Telescope for different observational programms and are included into data archive as coming from Telescope in FITS format. The author of the observational programm and the identification of the programm could be found in each detaled data set description presented in database.
Exclusive use of the data sets obtained on the 6-m Telescope granted for two years period (Time Allocation Commetee decision) to the authors of the observational programm. After this delay data sets become available for astronomical community with obligatory remarks, when data sets are used in publications : " for the publication we used data obtained on the 6-m Telescope for the observational programm (name of the programm), author of the programm (name of the programm author)".Here we presents only a part of ASPID-archive which gives possibility to look into the database in order to find the object of interest and detailes of observations of the object. Data sets themself could be recieved via FTP by request from archive manager (email@example.com), if they open for common use.
ASPID for the moment of release (19.02.2007) contains more then 92 Gb zipped data on 163 CDROM discs in ISO9660 format. Archive updates we make once in one - two months, in connection with data flow coming from Telescope.All questions related to the ASPID, please, forward to archive manager (firstname.lastname@example.org).
