Overview

The SAXWFCLOG database contains the SAX WFCs observations log for the AO cycles and the Science Verification Phase (SVP).

The two WFCs are located at 90 degrees from the NFI and set 180 degrees apart. The field of view is 40 deg X 40 deg and the coordinates given in this databases are the pointing positions.

The database is updated regularly to include the most recent timeline, and updates are provided by the SAX-Science Data Center in Rome.


Parameters

Op_ID
Internal SOC code.

Start_Time
Start time of the observation as a character string value.

End_Time
Stop time of the observation as a character string value.

Instr
Possible values are 1 for WFC1 and 2 for WFC2.

Top
This parameter gives the type of pointing. The possible values are P=Pointing, C=Contingency, S=Slew.

RA
Right ascension of the pointing position.

Dec
Declination of the pointing position.

LII
The requested galactic longitude.

BII
The requested galactic latitude.

Target
This parameter contains the source name when the WFCs operated as primary pointing instruments. Otherwise, it is set to 'Secondary' when the primary instruments were the NFIs located at 90 degrees from the WFCs.

Start_Date
Start date/time of the observation.

End_Date
Stop date/time of the observation.
