ROSAT Guest Observer Facility

What is the accepted pulse-height range?


For fitting of extended or diffuse sources, then (based upon a preprint from Plucinsky, et al. 1992), the accepted pulse height range is now 18 <= CH <= 249 to exclude a variable low pulse-height contamination. For point sources with proper background subtraction, one can use data down to and including channel 11.
