A series of cookbooks detailing analysis pipelines or observing system software are being developed and maintained with the help of LOFAR commisioners and early users.
The Lofar imaging cookbook was initially written by Timothy Garn, who was its main author till his death in 2009. Currently, Aleksandar Shulevski is in charge of updating it thanks to the contributions of the Lofar commissioners. The manual explains how to manually reduce imaging data and inspect the results, using tools from the standard imaging pipeline (NDPPP, BBS, and AWImager).
The latest version of the Lofar Imaging Cookbook is v. 17.0.
