Some possibly useful things to help get started:

 

bashrc -- Here is what mine currently looks like.  I suggest keeping this simple and only loading the essential modules. 

 

myInputs.sh -- A configuration file that should produce something remotely sensible,

updated (but not tested) for the newest 0.14.0-p2 release. 

Note that I have left selfcal off in order to focus on tuning the initial image.  

Please comment if you see something concerning! 

 

 

Some tips when working on these data:

 

-- To work just on one beam of one (of the 3) fields:

FIELD_SELECTION_SCIENCE=LMC_02_T0-0A

BEAM_MIN=8

BEAM_MAX=8

 

-- To see the model and residual image after every major cycle:

CLEAN_WRITE_AT_MAJOR_CYCLE=true 

 

-- To re-run just the imaging portion, you only need to change

IMAGE_BASE_CONT

the pipeline will skip all previous steps if they have already been done.

 

 

NOTE: we have identified a bug with the above settings.  

Until this can be patched, BEAM_MIN must be set to 0 for all operations 

on the bandpass calibrator.  One way to handle this is to set:

BEAM_MIN=0

BEAM_MAX=8

DO_SCIENCE_FIELD=false

 

and then, after this step completes, re-run the pipeline with:

BEAM_MIN=8

BEAM_MAX=8

DO_SCIENCE_FIELD=true
