The performance of the DRAGON recoil spectrometer at TRIUMF-ISAC has been studied using radiative capture reactions with stable beams of 12C, 20Ne, 21Ne, 23Na, 24Mg and 26Mg. Calibration of the deflection magnet measuring the beam energy was established and the beam suppression factors of the separator were investigated. Yields from six narrow resonances were measured and compared with previous results. For the 1,112.6 keV resonance in Ne20(p,γ)Na21 our result is in disagreement with the NACRE database assignment but agrees with another previous result.
