Bill Sweeney

  • Investigated the intra skycell differences in stack psf magnitudes between SAS V8 and SAS V9. Took many detours along the way but finally determined that the changes were caused by an improvement in the aperture correction in SAS V9. The change is due to better modeling of very bright stars. The previous versions were leaving flux behind
  • Modified psphotStack to output all of the data products supported by psphot. This is required because of the different filerule structure. (psphotStack operates on multiple fpas simultanetously.
  • Two days as processing czar and serveral hours as volunteer weekend czar.

  • Worked to understand how MOPS does their rejection. Began looking closer to see if a better rejection method can be designed.
  • Fought ppStack to add median background stacking. This was the major time sink this week.
