Abstract

CORAVEL is a very useful tool to measure stellar Doppler shifts directly. It was originally conceived at the Observatories of Marseilles and Geneve. Its operation is based on the hard cross-correlation of an echelle stellar spectrum with a suitable template. This paper describes the characteristics of an updated version of the instrument, under development at the Optical Science Laboratory (OSL) of University College London (UCL) for the University of Cambridge 36-inch telescope.
