Abstract

High-resolution and sensitive near-infrared spectroscopy is often limited by the ability to correct the atmospheric transmission. The simple division of the object spectrum by the spectrum of a nearby star turns out to be unsatisfactory because of the stellar features in the latter. We show how to measure the atmospheric transmission with a nearby early GV or late FV star, and to correct for the stellar features by means of the (atmospheric-transmission-corrected) solar spectrum.
