Entering Information

Files Tab is for making an Observe Table which defines the detailed observation procedures by specifing Source, Scan and Device Tables. This file name will be directly used for an operation of the 45-m telescope.

The "Choose" button allows you to choose a pre-saved configuration file. The file name will appear in the relevant box. The "Load" button will then allow you to load your configuration. Finally, the "Save" button allows you to save your setup into a text-based configuration file. Once you save all of the files, your file names should be displayed inside the project info box located at the bottom left corner of the obstable GUI.
