We describe a precise calibration procedure for an Offner imaging hyperspectrometer. We analyze the influence of the calibration on the accuracy of the spectral distribution registration. We conduct a comparative analysis of the experimental data with the results of the precise measurements of spectral distributions made using a high-precision laboratory spectrograph MS7504.
