description of field data
source
printout format
start time of stable pointing A yy/ddd hhmm
end time of stable pointingA ..ddd hhmm
right ascension (of star tracker) A hh mm ss
declination (of star tracker)
(RA & dec are in 1950 epoch; note that
these are not the target coordinates -
normally target is offset from star
tracker by about 2 arc mins)
A +/-dd mm.m
target name (left justified)
(no special convention for names;
the + sign to indicate a trim is
always the 16th character. If present)
A up to 16 characters
proposal code : divided Into 2 fields,
up to 8 characters
- class of proposal(PV TOO.LLX.AGN,
OPS,CAL,HLX,CLU,SNR,OCC,EXG, or MIS)
F

miscellaneous footnotes:
11 = solar aspect angle < 90 degs. 12 = unstable attitude
13 = partial data loss 18 = ME/HER4 data problem
19 = OBC problem or crash 21 = raster scan
* = 1st pointing of multi-pointing FOT C = continuation of a '*' FOT
principal investigator (a number > 0
pointing to a table of PI's names
and addresses. 0 means 'Observatory'.)
F
4 flags for whether FOTs exist:
(space means corresponding FOT doesn't exist)
F L = LE1 available
K = LE2 available
M = ME available
G = GS available
P.I. name (from FOT request; a blank space is shown If the request was
for the Observatory, e.g. for data
