TESOS performs 2D spectroscopy. Three Fabry-Perot interferometer (etalons) are tuned to scan through a solar absorption line. For each wavelength, 2D images of a narrow band (spectral resolution of 280 000) and of a broad band image are recorded. Approximately 100 wavelength positions can be recorded within 40 seconds. A data reduction software package is available. Data calibration routines are available.
