"Flux Calibration of DEIMOS-KECK data"

Accurate flux calibration is required to derive to many intrinsic properties of the galaxy like star formation rate. It is also required to compare the data from different instruments. In this FoF I will summarise some of the issues (and hopefully their solutions) encountered while flux calibrating data from DEIMOS spectrograph on KECK.
