Re: [TASS] Xmas Data Munching / Issues
Ted et All,
That would be great if you could look into the problem of
calculating RA & Dec in the wide-field enviornemnt that the Mark IV image(s)
are taken in. Hopefully we will have some way of "checking in/out
source code between now and the end of the year..
Herb and others that have been writing analysis code should be able to
use this type of a system as well to "store" thier code for future use by
others that may be interested....
