Hi all,

I contacted Sergey as Thomas suggested and he has kindly given us more details of the rectification process he used and also a file of the mean spectrum published in his 2003 paper (I have converted it to fits format and attached it as a zip file.) His full message is below

Cheers
Robin

Hello,

I've plotted the spectrum in the annex. For better "seeing" klick on the graph.

It looks like there are some bad values at the edges of Sergey's plot but I can now make a more accurate comparison with my Dec07-May08 average. (attached) Very close :-)

Regards
Robin
