The analysis manual (for editing for those in the know, not just for reading!) is here .

All users: Let's start by posting our observing run dates, the basic quality of the data for the night (or night reports if you still have them), and status of the reduction.

General Scheme for PAVO@CHARA Reduction (added by Noel Richardson - 20101111)
1. In IDL, run processv2
processv2,'081117',[1,1,1],18409,28739,'supergiants_081117.txt',root_dir='/media/disk-1/PAVO/',/plot,/individual
[1,1,1] = all 3 beams of PAVO open
18409=start filenumber
28739=end filenumber
'supergiants....' = output filename
root_dir specifies where to find data directory
/plot plots data
/individual allows you to run l0_l1 to determine if any bad data is in the files

2. l0_l1 (optional, but allows you to see data scans)
l0_l1,'input','l1.txt',skip=skip,check=check,usemean=usemean,siglimit=siglimit,waittime=waittime
'input' = file with a list of all the .pav files that were output from the /individual command
'l1.txt' = new output file

3. l1_l2 (calibrating visibilities)
l1_l2,['W2','S2','W1'],'l0_1.txt',t0=t0,jd=jd, telfile=telfile,ps=ps, exp=exp, linwt=linwt,elements=elements,coherent=coherent,wlim=wlim
['W2'...] = telescopes
'l1_l2.txt'=input filename (output from l0_l1)
Diameters for calibrators can be specified with appropriate filename given
