APEX LABOCA Data Handbook

Published: 19 Jul 2013

With wobbler on-off mode, the 870 micron Large Bolometer Camera (LABOCA) on APEX can obtain photometry of point sources with accurately known positions more efficiently than in the usual mapping mode. The data obtained with on-off mode can be reduced with the Bolometer Analysis (BoA) software. A new guide providing a step-by-step description of how to reduce and interpret photometry mode data (on-off observations), and assess the significance of point source detections, is now available.
