Regarding 2006 Jun 23 - Jul 7 data (CDD, 2006 Dec 10)

When the receiver was installed prior to 2006 June 23 (UT) observations, the spacers were accidentally omitted. This problem was corrected on 2006 July 10 (UT). The effect of omitting the spacers is to change the plate scale from the usual 4.6 arcsec/pixel to 5.0 arcsec/pixel. Use the "-platescale" option in CRUSH for reduction of data during that time.
