IRAS16293 Band9 - Imaging for CASA 5.6
WARNING: On June 15, 2012 the calibration guide and the final data products (calibrated science data: IRAS16293_Band9_CalibratedMS_FIXED.tgz and reference images: IRAS16293_Band9_ReferenceImages_FIXED.tgz)) were changed to correct for a 1.2" position error in the phase calibrator (1625-254). Without correction, the science images will suffer from a similar offset.
This section of the casa guide continues from IRAS16293_Band9_-_Calibration_for_CASA_5.6 . If you completed the calibration section, then you already have the final calibrated dataset. If you just started to work on this IRAS16293 B9 data, you can download the fully calibrated dataset IRAS16293_Band9_CalibratedMS from
This casa guide covers imaging of both continuum and spectral lines of IRAS16293 Band 9. This guide requires CASA 5.6.1. In this casa guide you will also need the Analysis Utils package, so make sure you have it imported into CASA.
Confirm your version of CASA
This guide has been written for CASA release 5.6.1. Please confirm your version before proceeding.
# In CASA import casadef version = casadef.casa_version print "You are using " + version if (version < '5.6.1'): print "YOUR VERSION OF CASA IS TOO OLD FOR THIS GUIDE." print "PLEASE UPDATE IT BEFORE PROCEEDING." else: print "Your version of CASA is appropriate for this guide."
