Scan Tab (Continuum)

The scan table prescribes the movement of the Nobeyama 45-m telescope. For continuum observations, the Nobeyama 45-m telescope can observe the target object with only one scan pattern, Cross Scan, which is mainly for pointing observations.

Scan Table [mandatory field]

Enter a name for the scan table. A configuration file will be saved under your working directory with the name of

<the name of the Scan Table you defined>.nscan

The limitations of a filename of the scan table are as follows:

NOTE: You can save the input parameters anytime you want (the nobs allows you to save the scan table even if some mandatory fields still blank). The nobs does not check whether these input parameters follow the rules at that time.

Click the Check button for a basic check of the parameters. This feature only checks for simple typos, and it is not meant for checking the details of the observational setup.

Note (optional)

You can use this space to leave any memo about the scan table. A character limit is 100, and a line break is prohibited.

Scan Pattern

Currently, the scan pattern that can be made with the 'nobs' is only 'Cross Scan'.

Cross Scan

This mode allows the user to create an observing script for a pointing observation.
