GMRT Antennas Pointing
This is an effort to understand and fix problems with the pointing of GMRT antennas
so that we can improve the astronomical image quality and identify the problems in future
for a quick solution. Both the astronomers and engineers are involved in this and are
doing their best - with this effort, we hope to combine the efforts and understanding
especially using the four years of pointing data that is available
This file is just to give the appropriate links to the meetings/updates/efforts/work on this
for quick access to the group + record till we move it to a general website.

The first meeting on ths same was held on 21 May 2015 where various members from the mechanical,
servo, operations groups and academics participated. Summaries are here and
here . A copy of the
NCRA technical report which discusses two years of pointing data is
here . A snapshot of the page in the report
which summarises the antennas which showed an abrupt change in the pointing offset
between October 2010 and November 2012 is here .
