To make quick three-color images, you can use Spot or Leopard. Go up to the "Images" menu. Pick "FITS image from disk" if you already have the images on your local disk, or the survey of your choice from the menu. Select "make this a 3-color image." Pick ...
Instructions on how to access your data can be found on the Data Archives page.
Here is an example FIF.tbl file, which is by default placed in your output directory by the MOPEX module Fiducial Image Frame. ******************************************************************************** \char comment = Output from fiducial_image_...
The aperture shown in CUBISM is data-driven, and does not intend to represent the full slit. The width in the CUBISM visualization reflects that of the 1 pixel width wavesamp, which is set that way on purpose, reflecting the fact that in the cross-slit...
You may experience inconsistencies between the colors indicated in the CUBISM documentation and what you see on your screen if you have chosen to install the full source distribution of CUBISM. If you have trouble with the colors looking strange on a 1...
You may encounter the error "Failed during validation" if you have spaces in the path to your input files. To avoid this problem, you can: - remove the space from your path OR - identify a directory with no spaces, and create a symbolic link to ...
An example of the problem using the SH and LH slits is illustrated here: http://ssc.spitzer.caltech.edu/files/spitzer/n1365_irs_sh_lh.jpg [1]. The spectral map positions are in array coordinates, which have axes that are parallel and perpendicular to t...
If you are having problems with SSC-supported software (MOPEX/APEX, Bandmerge, SPICE, CUBISM, IRSCLEAN, IRSFRINGE, or the GeRT) then please submit a ticket to the Spitzer Helpdesk and we'll be happy to help. If you are having problems with Contributed Sof...
In order to understand the answer to this question, you need a little background on the SSC pipeline. Roughly every six months, the pipeline number (the "S-number") for all new Spitzer data (from all instruments) in the archive is incremented as a new so...
Open the "Java Preferences" application, found in Applications > Utilities > Java, and switch to Java 1.5 32-bit. If this doesn't work, then close SPICE and open a Terminal window. Issue the following commands. cd /Applications/spice/spice.app/Cont...
The pbcd products available from the archive were originally intended as quick-look images of your data. Post-BCD products have been produced with generic namelists, and the parameters have not been optimized for your data set. Post-BCD products and Level...
As part of the closeout for the Spitzer cryogenic mission custody of Spitzer documentation was transferred from the Spitzer Science Center to the Infrared Science Archive (IRSA) in April of 2011. However some information needed to run the warm mission was...
You must add the astrolib library to your IDL path. Make sure that your IDL path includes SMART before astrolib.
Pipeline products after S18.5 no longer provide dmasks as they contain misleading and incomplete information. They have been superceded by the information contained in the the imask files. The imasks are more robust, include flagging of various artifacts ...
