How stable is the ROC? Are there still changes ongoing?
Posted by z-Schuyler Van Dyk on 04 December 2008 11:53 AM
The Spitzer Reserved Observations Catalog (ROC) is technically no longer a static ASCII list. It is the set of all executed or planned observations in our database. The ROC should be searched via Leopard. In general the SSC will not allow a duplication of observations listed in the ROC. Refer to the Spitzer Observing Rule #2 for details on what constitutes a candidate for duplication of observations.
