DESCRIPTION

OFFPOL generates images of the primary beam response (both total intensity and polarimetric) of the ATCA antennas. It performs a simple simulation of an observation.  

PARAMETERS

out
Output name template. No default.
imsize
Two values, the image size. Second value defaults to first. Default 255.
cell
Two values, the image cell size in RA and Dec, in arcsec. Second value defaults to first. Each defaults separately to twice the primary beam FWHM divided by imsize.
ra
Right ascension of the field centre. (Used solely for setting the output header, it has no effect on the computation.) Default 0.
dec
Declination of the field centre. Default -45 deg.
harange
Hour angle range to simulate - the start and end hour angles, and the simulation step size. The default is to simulate a snapshot at 0 hours. The default step size is 0.1 hours (6 min) which might be inadequate for sources with a declination near -30 deg.
freq
Frequency of interest (GHz). The default is 1.384 GHz.
options
Task enrichment parameters. Several can be given.
  raw      Generate images of the XX,YY,XY and YX responses,
           rather than the Stokes responses.
  subtract Subtract off the circularly symmetric portion of the
           primary beam response from I, XX and YY responses.
