16: Mapping and Calibration: 2010 April 19

Ran tests of nodding spectra with all beams. Seemed OK. Ran some maps of TMC, Orion and M33, which looked reasonable.
  • Moon Daisy scan at low elevation; 7 Beams NH3 1-1 and 2-2
    • On/Off Moon, Scans 23,24
    • Daisy on Moon, Scan 25; 10 Minute duration
    • On/Off Moon Scans 26,27
  • Tmc Spectra, miss-configured Scans 33-38
  • Tmc-1 Map, NH3 1-1 and 2-2 Data look good. Strip is longer perpendicular to source structure. Frequency switched configuration.
    • On/Off Tmc, Scans 39,40
    • DecLatMap, Scans 41 to 61
    • On/Off Tmc, Scans 62, 63
  • Tmc-1 Map
    • On/Off Tmc, Scans 69,70
    • DecLatMap, Scans 71 to 91
    • On/Off Tmc, Scans 92, 93
  • Moon Daisy scan at higher elevation; 7 Beams NH3 1-1 and 2-2
    • On/Off Moon, Scans 94, 95
    • Daisy Scan 96; Duration 10 Minutes
    • On/Off Moon, Scans 97, 98
  • Tests of sub-reflector nod on 3C48, scans 104-109
  • Tests of nod with all beams on 3C48, scans 110 to 117
  • Test of external galaxy mapping on M33 (not much signal)
    • On/Off M33, Scans 118,119
    • Map of M33, Scans 120 to 147
    • On/Off M33, Scans 148,149
  • Orion Daisy Map
    • On/Off Orion, Scans 159, 160
    • Daisy map, Scan 162; Map duration only 5 minutes
    • On/Off Orion Scans 163, 164
  • Initial tests of baseline stability, on M33, 800 MHz bandwidth, only 4 beams, Scans 165 to 172
