WSRT observation helpers


IVC helper

For advice on the integration time of an IVC observation, choose an observing band, a correlator setup and total bandwidth and give the desired integration time or the desired noise level.
This is for one IVC sub-band

To obtain the noise in Kelvin and/or the spatial resolution, also specify the declination of the source.

Frequency band
Correlator setup
Bandwidth
Dec (J2000) degrees
Desired integration time
hours

Observation timing

For advice on the timing of the observation and to know the spatial resolution, give the position of the source
RA(J2000): :
in hh:mm:ss.ss format
Dec(J2000): :
in [-]dd:mm:ss.ss format
