Next: Alternating Exposure Times Up: 3.1.3 On-board Data Processing Previous: Telemetry Saturation Limits Chip Telemetry Choices

  The pattern of chip telemetry selection is selectable. Normal choices are 1, 2, 4, or 6 CCD chips. Telemetering to the ground data from fewer chips will give a smaller effective field of view on the sky, but may be necessary if a bright source makes telemetry saturation effects important, or if `flickering' pixels become a problem.
