  • beginning VEGAS analysis of 1ES 1215+303 for 2021
    • running a crab analysis again to make sure I can do the steps properly
    • will be applying timecuts in the method Leela recommends from thier own experience with VEGAS
Changed:

  • source has only 3 runs in 2021 which are of acceptable quality (only 1 other run of 'D' quality) to be included in the analysis (timecuts noted)

  • Ran stage6 and began intrepretation of output
  • using massimo's plotting code for stage6, got significance map and Excess counts map for 121
    • need to now learn more about what these are, the science behind them, and create slides about them

    • understand generally:
      • significance map : source - background / width of source (?)
      • excess counts : counts which are above the background noise (source - background)
Line: 92 to 92
 
      • I know where to find X-ray data
      • nothing else
    • SED fitting for new data?
