What about other observatories? The checker environment can
also be used to plan observing trips at other observatories. You
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.
