the FFT is written in C for efficiency and dynamically linked into Java at run time

We are grateful to Justin Shuttleworth who implemented the original design of Grid as the ideas presented in this version provided a strong foundation for the current design of Grid's graphical user interface

We do not discount the possibility of a version of Grid being made commercially available but none-the-less we will always provide a free version for download.

CIA is a joint development by the ESA Astrophysics Division and the ISOCAM Consortium led by the ISOCAM PI, C. Cesarsky, Direction des Sciences de la Matiere, C.E.A., France.

ISO is an ESA project with instruments funded by ESA member states (especially the PI countries: France, Germany, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom) and with the participation of ISAS and NASA.

A state is the atomic unit of CAM activities. An ISO pointing and all CAM parameters are fixed within a state.

It stands for Nobeyama Engineering Workstation Systematic Tool for Astronomical Reduction. It should not be confused with NFRA's software known by the same acronym.

Babu & Feigelson (1996) incorrectly suggest 203#203.

A recent poll of our community has produced the consensus that we will support DATExxxx='1999-12-31', with optional ISO-8601 time notation.

This feature of BINTABLE is an especially clever piece of craftsmanship.

A complete description of the Hipparcos and Tycho Mission and data reduction may be found in (Perryman 1989), some more detailed papers on Tycho and Hipparcos in two series of papers from various authors in (A&A 258, 1992 and A&A 304, 1995)

The TYC contains a field telling the user whether there are single observations available in TEPA/A or TEPA/B

one of these tools is using a description file for the columns of a catalogue in order to produce an IDL-interface routine

Keyword searching is currently not available from the main abstract service search page because of the lack of a uniform and consistent keywording system for the current references.

The HET is operated by McDonald Observatory on behalf of the University of Texas at Austin, the Pennsylvania State University, Stanford University, Ludwig-Maximilians Universitat München, and Georg-August Universitat Göttingen.

The TMS shares many of the custom modules with WORF2

EWGIE, developed by Kevin Hughes at kevinh@commerce.net. (http://www.eit.com/ewgie/)

note the addition of the term 858#858 to the classical formula, in order to allow for positive and negative differential distortions with respect to the mean radial distance 859#859 where the equivalent focal length is nominal (i.e., 364mm)

The bottom left corner pixel has coordinates (0,0)

RoadRunner was named after a bird of that species who for a time lived near the 1.5 meter and was always a source of inspiration before a night's observing to one of the authors.
