Description of the different processing versions

Summary of Cambridge processing for semester 2006A:

Processing version #1

Pipeline v. 4.

  • Images : problems with the camera controller led to a large fraction of May 2006 data to have missing or blank chips. The pipeline front-end has been  made more robust to cope with these new foibles. When a chip is missing a blank one is created and flagged with a special keyword: this means that both the single images and the data products will always have four extensions but, occasionally, one or more may be blank (image) or empty (catalogue). 06A dome and standard sequences indicate non-linearity is still smaller than 1% triggered by cf. 2MASS.
  • Catalogues : in progress.
  • Calibration : in progress.
  • Available : June / August 2006.
