Default beam for ALMA in casa (see CAS-3532)

Test to confirm that the change was implemented in 3.4

  • Imaged one channel of ALMA data at 343.724GHz
  • Plotted 50% contour of .flux image and measured the diameter with a cursor
    • In 3.3 r16856, result is 15.536"
    • In 3.4 r18400, result is 17.35"
    • UAP says that a 0dB taper on a 12m dish is 15.29", while a -12dB taper is 17.72"
  • Crystal did a similar test on a 693 GHz dataset in 3.4 r19662 and found ~8.6", consistent with the larger value.
