FOCAS distortion

There is significant distortion across the 6' field of view of FOCAS, amounting to more than 2'' at the edge of the field. Software is being developed to correct for this but applicants should be aware that accurate (<0.5'') astrometry across the entire field of view is not possible.

More details of the distortion correction will appear here later.
