    52 Eagle uses a 1024x1024 CCD, but is spatially binned by 2 when in operation (so you get a maximum of 512 spatial pixels).  This base level of 2 is "spatial binning = 1".  However, when in calibration mode, the instrument returns the full data width (ie. all 1024 pixels).  This must be accounted for in any calibration code. (source: phone chat with Bill, 6/Nov/2007)
     52Eagle uses a 1024x1024 CCD, but only the middle ~504 spectral pixels are used in normal operation (representing the range from ~390nm to ~950nm) and may be spectrally binned by 2 (giving 252 bands).

     54However, when used with a band file for "calibration mode", the instrument returns the full data width (i.e. all 1024 pixels).  This must be accounted for in any calibration code. (source: phone chat with Bill, 6/Nov/2007, much amended 30/Jul/2007 following corrections to Mike's interpretation from Bill)
