Writing Visibility FITS Files

Task fits can also be used to write a visibility FITS file. In addition to the keywords used when reading visibility datasets, fits uses keywords select, stokes and options to control extra processing performed on the visibilities.

Unfortunately fits is more sophisticated at reading FITS files than writing - note the following caveats carefully.

Typical inputs follow:

in=0823.uv Name of input Miriad dataset.
op=uvout Write out a visibility FITS file.
out=0823.FITS Output FITS file - probably upper case for AIPS.
select Select appropriate data.
stokes=i,q,u,v Select appropriate polarizations.
option Leave unset to apply calibration,
options=nopol,nocal,nopass or turn off all calibration.
