'nobs' is a Python-based program that allows the observer to create observing scripts for observations using the Nobeyama 45-m telescope. This program is designed for observations with the SAM45 spectrometer in conjunction with any of the receivers equipped with the Nobeyama 45-m telescope. Those who wish to perform continuum observations including the pointing observation should consult the manual.
There are many differences between the nobs and the zobs, which had been used until the 2016-2017 observing season,
not only their appearances but definitions of technical words.
At the following link, we describe what has been changed between the two.

An observing script for the Nobeyama 45-m telescope, 'Obstable', is made of a combination of 4 files (called as 'tables'): source table, reference table, scan table, and device table. Tabs in the nobs are designed to make these tables.
For line observations, details are described in the following pages:
You can make basic observing scripts based on the explanations in linked pages above. Following links are guides for specific observations.
