Frequently Asked Questions about ROSAT Data Processing

The following questions have been asked often about the ROSAT PSPC.

This file will be updated as needed, and the dates at the end of the question lines will reflect how 'fluid' the answers are. The dates will gradually 'freeze' with experience, and thus should age. Thus, an 'old' date does not necessarily mean 'old knowledge'.

If you have a question which you think is, or could be, a "Frequently Asked Question", please e-mail it to
