  • FXBARY (v5.0.2)

    FXBARY (v5.0.2) may produce non-physical results if more than 100 orbit files are input, despite the documentation's claim that up to 1000 are supported. A fix is being investigated but in the meantime RXTE users who need to barycenter correct long-term lightcurves are advised to use the alternative tool, FAXBARY (v2.2), which will handle an unlimited number of orbit files. FAXBARY also has the advantage of being compatible with the merged, mission-long orbit file available at the RXTE ftp site. Please see the FAXBARY documentation for more details.

If you have a question about RXTE, please send email to one of our help desks.
