Phase-Referenced Imaging and Micro-arcsecond Astrometry
PRIMA Specific Tools
- APES: Astrometric observation PrEparation Software,
For the preparation of narrow angle astrometric observations using PRIMA and the Auxiliary Telescopes (ATs). It allows to simulate the performance of the instrument for a given set of targets and reference stars.
VLTI Tools and information
ESO has developped a suite of tools to help you to prepare proposals for the VLT interferometric instruments (AMBER, MIDI):
- VisCalc, the visibility vs. (u,v)-plane coverage calculator.
- CalVin, the online catalog of interferometric calibrator-stars.
