mospsf  Determine approximate PSF of a mosaic experiment

DESCRIPTION
MOSPSF is a MIRIAD task which determines the point spread function
for a linear mosaic of dirty images (as produced by INVERT).
Strictly speaking, the PSF varies with position and frequency.
However if the pointing grid is fairly complete and the individual
synthesised beam patterns are similar, the PSF is reasonably
independent of position. It is also usually a good approximation
that it is independent of frequency.
PARAMETERS
 beam

This gives the name of the input beamcube (as produced by INVERT).
No default.
 out

The name of the output pointspread function. It will be the same size
as the input.
 radec

The RA and DEC (either in the form hh:mm:ss,dd:mm:ss or decimals hours
and degrees) at which to compute the pointspread function. The default
is the reference RA,DEC of the beamcube.
 freq

The frequency (in GHz) at which to compute the pointspread function.
The default is the reference frequency of the beamcube. The
pointspread function is reasonably independent of frequency for most
spectral line observations.
