Usage


In science:

When inbeam sources are listed, the pulsar positions are tied to the positions of the primary calibrator through the in-beam sources.
Precision Astrometry with the Very Long Baseline Array: Parallaxes and Proper Motions for 14 Pulsars
Since inbeam calibrators are usually fairly weak (∼ 10 mJy) and show some source structure, we required longer time averages and lower S/N cutoffs for the calibration solutions, up to a limit of 5 minutes of averaging and S/N & 1.8.
Precision Astrometry with the Very Long Baseline Array: Parallaxes and Proper Motions for 14 Pulsars
The high sensitivity of the long baseline SKA is required not only to detect weak and distant pulsars, but also to provide a high density of calibrator sources surrounding the pulsars that will enable multi-view inbeam calibration, and therefore high precision astrometry (Rio ja et al. 2009; Fomalont & Reid 2004).
