Selected sky lines

A list of sky lines that can be found in spectra (read … handy sky lines!):

wavelength (in Å):

5577.3 ( > 5579)

5893 ( > 5890, 5896)


6363.8 (1/3 of 6300.3)

An excellent and very convenient tool to find and plot the sky lines from 3140 – 10430 can be found at vizier, catalogue J/A+A/407/1157 (Hanuschik+, 2003)

UPDATE 17/11/2015: Another good list of lines is given by the ESO/UVES team in their UVES sky emission spectrum.
