Yes. However, many mac owners use the bash shell. In that case, you must edit one line in each of two files: line 46 of /smart/utility/misc/sm_list_files.pro line 81 of /smart/scripts/pro/sc_read_fits_bcd.pro In each file, the line in question...
To do it you need to make your own extraction mask. The simplest way to do this is to write an IDL routine which makes a 128X128 array, sets the array elements to the values you want them to be and then writes out to a file. Mask files can be either ".fit...
Scripted autosky extraction hasn't yet been programmed into SMART and is on the to do list. However, you could look into the IDL source code to identify the subroutines which perform source extraction and write an IDL program which has just these routines...
Read the SMART installation documentation carefully. In almost all cases, problems have been because of the order of directories in the IDL_PATH or a missing "+" sign or the absence of the IDL astro library in the IDL_PATH. Make sure you have the most rec...
The values that are relevant are RA_SLT, DEC_SLT, PA_SLT. RA_SLT and DEC_SLT are different for different nod positions while RA_FOV and DEC_FOV remain the same between nods. So lets say your PA_SLT is 0 degrees (that means the long axis of the slit is rot...
This is a known problem and is being fixed. It has been reported by a user that selecting 'fixed column' extraction in the 'interactive extraction' will perform a fixed column extraction and will use the user-defined extraction width if you manually se...
Yes, the developers of SMART have written a SMART cookbook. Additional illustrations of data reduction with SMART can be found in the SMART section of the Spitzer Data Analysis Cookbooks page.
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.
