We present an approach to improve the radial velocity precision of NIRSPEC data (spectral resolution R = λ/Δλ ≈ 22,000) by using a self-calibration approach. We demonstrate that the accuracy can be significantly improved by deconvolving the spectra and using the telluric lines as a long-term stable wavelength reference.
