Generic EPIC FOV for observations planning

Nora Loiseau 9 months ago • updated by Bruno Merín 9 months ago 1

It would be very useful to have an XMM observation planning tool overlaping a field with a generic EPIC footprint for a given RA, Dec and Position Angle. Aladin has this tool wrong, placing RA, Dec in the PN gaps intersection...

Thanks for the suggestion Nora. It had always been our intention to have this feature working for all active missions. I have added it to our backlog and will try to prioritize such that it can be useful for the next XMM-Newton AO, which is at the beginning of October this year, right?
