Estimates the synthesized beam from the max baseline length and representative frequency in a measurement set. See also estimateSynthesizedBeamFromASDM and estimateSynthesizedBeamForConfig.


au.estimateSynthesizedBeam(vis, useL80method=True, field='')
  • field: if not blank, then find the first integration on the specified field ID or name, get its az&el and compute the projected baseline lengths rather than the unprojected baseline lengths
  • useL80method: if True, use .574lambda/L80 (i.e. Eq 7.4 of Cycle 4 Technical handbook); if False, then use the max baseline
