ROSAT

*
A guide to the Astronomical X-Ray Satellite ROSAT Intended to provide ROSAT users with an overview of all technical aspects of ROSAT · With special emphasis on the calibration of the various instruments Max-Planck-Institut für extraterrestrische Physik · NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center · Harvard/Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics · University of Leicester
*
Descr.: This document contains the correlation between UTC and the ROSAT onboard clock for the whole mission since launch. Data are given as pairs (UTC / SCC) together with the result of a linear regression and plots of the residuals (which are typically below 10msec) · Author: P. Predehl
*
Descr.:Documents about the calibrations of the ROSAT space craft clock (SCC) and data used in eXsas · Author: W. Becker
*
G. Boese · Max-Planck-Institut für extraterrestrische Physik · A&A Suppl. Ser. 141, 507-521 (2000)
*
Descr.: Note about the improvement of source positions for ROSAT pointing data processed without optimum boresight values · Authors: M. Kürster & R. Gruber · Max-Planck-Institut für extraterrestrische Physik · 1996/03/04

Max-Planck-Institut für extraterrestrische Physik · TN-ROS-MPE-ZA00/032 · 1995/04/10
*
Analysis of the in-flight Al Kalpha data. Demonstrates the magnitude of inaccuracies recently discovered in the temporal & spatial gain correction applied by SASS, and reviews the current status of the work being done at NASA/GSFC & MPE to understand and correct for these · CAL/ROS/95-003
*
Details all the corrections applied to individual PSPC events during the conversion from their arrival position & pulse height channel to their corrected coordinates & pulse-invariant channel. This memo is essentially a copy of the original MPE memo TN-ROS-ME-ZA00/027, but updated and expanded to also refer to the FITS versions of the calibration files available from the CALDB · CAL/ROS/95-010
*
Gives a detailed description of an analytical parameterization of the PSF by Hasinger et al; as published in Legacy, 2, 77 · CAL/ROS/92-001
*
Addendum to the memo CAL/ROS/92-001 comparing the analytical parameterization of the PSF with a high signal-to-noise dataset by Hasinger et al; as published in Legacy, 3, 46 · CAL/ROS/92-001a
*
Gives a detailed description of an analytical parameterization of the PSF by Hasinger etal; as published in Legacy, 4, 40 · CAL/ROS/93-015
