GBT Holography Backend FITS File Specification

PDF Version


The FITS format structure is presented for the Holography Backend scan data files. The scan data FITS files are permanently archived after each observation, and together with the scan data files from other devices provide the complete record of each observation.

The scan data FITS files contain one or more binary FITS images obtained by the holography backend over the course of the observation.
