Getting data

Optical pointing is done using the MNU program, and the DCL commands CRE (CREate the data file), SAV (SAVe telescope coordinates in the data file), CAT (select a star from the star CATalog), and PLA (select a PLAnet), or using the automatic searching mode of MNU. Please refer to the document ``Foreign Commands'' by A. Perrigouard for a complete description of these commands.

Two different approaches can be used for the optical pointing, depending whether you have an idea of the pointing parameters or not.
