THE SOURCE LIST

This is the list of objects you wish to observe. Ideally, it should be named 'src.list' and should be placed in your project area on the data-taking computer.

The format for your source list is:
name RhRmRs.s DdDmDs.s b/j velocity # Any comments you have

 Name: Your object name, usually given as one word (no spaces). 
If you really wish to use spaces in your names,
put them in quotes.

RhRmRs.s: The hour, minutes, and seconds in RA of your object

DdDmDs.s: The declination degrees, minutes, and seconds of you object. this can be preceded by a + or -.

b/j: The epoch of your coordinates (b=B1950, j=J2000). You can have both epochs within your list.

v: The velocity of your object. This can be in km/s or in redshift (optical or radio definition)

# Comments: These will show up in the gui windows

An Example source list looks like this:
