When characterizing a high resolution echelle spectrograph, for instance for precise Doppler work, it is useful to observe featureless sources such as quartz lamps or hot stars to determine the response of the instrument. Such sources provide a way to determine the blaze function of the orders, pixel-to-pixel variations in the detector, fringing in the system, and other important characteristics.
