coordsys.settelescope - Function

1.1.3 Set a new telescope


Description

This function sets a new telescope of the observation. The telescope position may be needed for reference code conversions; this is why it is maintained in the Coordinate System. So it is fundamental to the Coordinate System and should be correct.

You can find a list of the observatory names know to CASA with the Measures obslist function.

You can get the current telescope with function telescope.
