Bill Sweeney

  • Updated lap_science.pl to only queue chipRuns for updating if the corresponding warps are not present on disk.
  • Modified psastro to detect and avoid invalid reference stars in the reference catalog
  • Investigated and fixed a problem where psphot consumes unreasonable amounts of memory. The problem was in psphotKronIterate(). It wasn't checking the validity of the kron radius that it calculated. Added some error checking there. This was also the cause of many of the very large kron radii measurements that we get from time to time.
  • Did some optimizations to psphotStack that make in run faster if radial aperture measurments is turned off. This speeds up debugging considerably.
  • Czaring.
