Abstract: At Gemini Observatory, observers typically take a series of calibration frames (bias frames and twilight flats for GMOS, an optical imager and spectrograph) at the end of each night. Once the required number of frames has been obtained for each band and instrument mode, they are then reduced by observatory staff and ingested into the archive on a monthly basis. This article describes a new algorithm that performs these tasks fully automatically.
