Other Observatories

  What about other observatories? The checker environment can also be used to plan observing trips at other observatories. You most likely need to add your sources into catalog form using the catalog  program. You can either do this interactively, or through a table file in a specific format. Next, you can use checksource , and perhaps distance , to figure which sources are present during which LST range, and plan accordingly. The program mint can be used to simulate taking an observation (scan) for a specified amount of time.
