RGS Response files

The tar file available here contains example RGS response matrices for RGS1 and RGS2 in 1st and 2nd orders. These response files were calculated using SASv13.5. Since no changes affecting the computation of the RGS response matrices have been introduced since SASv13.5, and given the very slow decrease of the effective area due to contamination, these files can be used to estimate RGS count rates in AO16.
