COMICS camera filters
The following table lists the filters available in the camera section of COMICS, together with their sensitivities (noise equivalent flux densities). All sensitivities are for 1 sigma detections in 1 second of background-limited on-source integration. Extended source sensitivities are per arcsec2.
Important: Sensitivities assume chopping only; limiting fluxes will be sqrt(2) times higher if chopping and nodding are required. You must read the information on Overheads and observing technique before planning your observations.
