Based on the observations carried out with TNT in Dec 2019, Jan and Nov 2020, we evaluated the technical properties of MRES. We tested the spectral resolution of the device with different slits, measured the level of scattered light and total throughput. Given these results, we formulated the recommendations to the observational strategy with MRES and developed a prototype of the exposure calculator. Additionally, we present the tools created during the evaluation.
