Create a PSF (deprecated)

CIAO 4.12 Science Threads


Overview

Synopsis:

The Chandra Ray Tracer (ChaRT) gives the best available HRMA Point Spread Function (PSF) for a point source at any off-axis angle and for any energy or spectrum.

CIAO 4.4 was the last software release that included the mkpsf tool. Users should be using the ChaRT tool to simulate the PSF for their observation.

Last Update: 27 Nov 2012 - The mkpsf tool has been removed from CIAO 4.5. Users should use ChaRT to simulate their PSF.
