Introduction to the Auxiliary Telescope (AuxTel), Its Data & Commissioning

Auxiliary telescope (AuxTel) operations are the first step to Rubin Commissioning on-sky, and the data is flowing! As this is the first real astronomical data obtained by Rubin Observatory at the summit with official Rubin hardware and processed with in-house pipelines, we invite the entire Rubin community to come and learn about AuxTel and celebrate this exciting step towards the LSST.

In this session we will provide an introduction to AuxTel, its photometric and spectroscopic data, validatation of the AuxTel system and its processing pipeline, and its role in commissioning.
