Bima Optical Pointing Project. I. the Stv Video Camera


This memo presents the rst steps toward a functional optical pointing system at BIMA. The speciications of the STV video camera mounted on the optical pointing telescopes of the Hat Creek interferometer are shown. The sensitivity of the system has been empirically determined (m zp = 15:9 m) and simulations have shown that a signal to noise of 15 is needed… (More)
