Getting XRCF HRC Data

The starting point are the ASC created HRC level 1 files available at SAO in directories given by:


dd's HRC processing for web page

The level 1 FITS files were processed by to produce IDL save files containing Level_1-like quantities (DETX, DETY, ENERGY, STATUS, TIME), with DETX, DETY in mm, Energy is in "quasi keV", that is PHA of 0-255 has been scaled to 0 to 10 keV.

MARX simulations of the XRCF data are carried out using and .

The event color-coding schemes used for ACIS data were directly applied here for the HRC data. The colors have less information however.
