5.10 Spatial Directions on the Chip

With the Gold Camera, decreasing wavelength is always toward increasing column numbers (red is to the left). At a position angle of 90 deg (E-W slit), east is toward decreasing row numbers. At a position angle of 0 deg, north is toward decreasing row numbers. The Gold Camera has no facility allowing dispersion to run along columns.
