Reduction of Pointing and Focussing Scans
This is done by SOLVE POINTING and SOLVE FOCUS commands.
These commands will scan the current index for the specific data, and fit
the data for each antenna. The results may be kept in a data file (Text
format): use the option /OUTPUT filename NEW or /OUTPUT filename
APPEND for this.
In both cases, option /PLOT will produce a graphic display of each
- for SOLVE POINTING, the measured pointing errors in the file
may be used to replace the collimations in OBS (command CORRECTIONS, first two arguments), or the data file be used as a whole
to solve for pointing coefficients with the program POINT (see the
specific documentation on pointing).
- for SOLVE FOCUS, the measured error is to be added to the
foc correction in OBS (command CORRECTIONS, third argument).
