GBT Optical Pointing Camera FITS File Specification

PDF Version


The FITS format structure is presented for the Optical Pointing Camera (OPC) 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 OPC over the course of the observation.
