ROSAT Guest Observer Facility

Can I look at an image in detector coordinates?


With the release of PROS-2, the answer is 'yes'. Use the following command:

where x1:x2 is the x-pixel range, y1:y2 is the y-pixel range.

Include any blocking factor in the first set of brackets ("[ ]") as [bl=n,key...].

The second set of brackets is standard IRAF image coordinate notation, with the caveat that the sub-section values refer to the resulting image, i.e., if you block the image, the sub-section values must be in the blocked coordinate frame.
