XTEASMQUICK: Help

XTEASMQUICK - XTE All-Sky Monitor Quicklook Observed Data


Overview

This database table is based on information culled from the (near) real-time RXTE All-Sky Monitor light curve data products. These data products are available for downloading at ftp://legacy.gsfc.nasa.gov/xte/data/archive/ASMProducts/realtime_current/lightcurves/

Provenance

The XTEASMQUICK database table is updated automatically, usually every three hours or whenever new real-time ASM data products are delivered to the HEASARC from the RXTE SOF.

Data Products

The XTEASMQUICK table makes available quicklook results from the XTE All-Sky Monitor for about 220 sources. The light curve (.lc) files give the total measured intensity, and the color (.col) files give intensities in three sub-energy bands (or "colors"). The light curve and color files are cumulative for a period of one to two weeks. These data products are provided in FITS format.

Parameters

Source
The ASM source designation.

RA
The Right Ascension of the source.

Dec
The Declination of the source.

LII
The Galactic Longitude of the source.

BII
The Galactic Latitude of the source.

Start_Time
The start time of the dwell of the observation.

Dwell_Time
The duration of the dwell, in seconds.

SSC_Number
The number indicating which detector measured the flux values.

Flux
The counts per second measured by a single SSC detector during the dwell.

Error_In_Flux
The error range of the measured flux value.

Rdchi_Sq
The reduced Chi squared of the fit.

DoF
The degrees of freedom of the fit.
