The integration mode event list is very similar to the photon counting event list as far as the FITS format goes; however the criteria of what an event list is has changed. In integration mode, any pixel in the bias subtracted image that is above some user set threshold is output to the event list. This is simply a way to encode the images as an event list. The differences in the event list are
The advantage of this format data is that every frame is recorded individually, thus there is a much finer time scale. The disadvantage is that this is a very difficult data format to understand...basically we are simply changing an image into an event list.
