Short summary
We investigated the susceptibility of the Dobson spectrophotometer No. 118 to stray-light interference. The monochromatic-heterochromatic stray light derived by Basher’s model was used in order to evaluate the specific instrumental parameters which determine if this instrument suffers from this problem or not. The results obtained indicate that the Athens Dobson instrument appears to have an insignificant stray-light error.
