The simplest option is to use the configuration defaults. To find stars for the INT, use commands like the following:
$GSS GSS>CONFIG INT CASS GSS>ROTATOR 90 GSS>SEARCH 12 34 56.23 30 00 02 J2000 GSS>EXIT $TYPE OUTPUT.GSThis finds the brightest 10 guide stars available for the INT Cass focus at the specified position for sky position angle . The position and probe coordinates for the guide star are given in OUTPUT.GS, which is the default output file name.
The next example shows how to increase the number of potential guide stars and to produce a plot of the results for the INT Prime focus.
$XDISPLAY $GSS GSS>CONFIG INT PRIME GSS>ROTATOR 180 GSS>NUMBER 50 GSS>DEVICE XWINDOWS GSS>SEARCH 23 23 24.56 45 56 23.1 B1950 GSS>PLOT GSS>EXIT $TYPE OUTPUT.GSproduces an X-windows plot.
On La Palma, the guide star details may be printed using WHT_LASE OUTPUT. GS or INT_LASE OUTPUT.GS. To get a hard copy of the plot, use CANON_L as the device name, and use WHT_GLASE or INT_GLASE to print the resulting CANON.DAT file, or POSTSCRIPT_L, followed by WHT_PLASE GKS_72.PS. A complete list of the currently-supported configurations is given in the next section.
