Re: Database back online
This is good news. So you can think about it, you will get triplet sets of
files. All have the same prefix before the dot which tells you the
telescope, filter and day. One is the familiar .cal file. Another is a
file generated from the make_list file. It lists all the images that were
processed to make the file, and a bunch of information bout the sky
conditions, and the like. There is one line for each image processed so it
is very small compared to the .cal file. The third file is a concatenation
of all the .param files. This file is also quite small compared to the
.cal file. This file lists where all the parameters where set in order to
process the file.
By using these files, it would be possible to select all the measurements
made under very clear sky conditions. This is just one thing that I can
think of that we might want to do. One would have to go through the
make_list files and search out all the measurements that were made when the
sky value in the make_list line was low. The make list line give the area
where the telescope was pointing and the date/time of the
observation. There may be a good way to do this in a data base.
I am busy processing old files. I am through 50+ of 200+ CDs.
