A new version of CASTIA Source Visibility has been released.
CASTIA is a software package developed by M.N. Iacolina, V.Vacca, A. Pellizzoni, S. A. Iacolina, A.Trois and the SRT Astrophysical Validation Team and is able to check radio source visibility at a given date. In its first version, CASTIA produced visibility plots from the Italian radio telescopes (SRT, Medicina and Noto).
The new release presents three main improvements:
- it produces plots containing both the visibility and the elevation of radio sources versus time, including daytime radio sources, which were not offered by any other public source visibility tool;
- a large collection of international facilities can be selected from the menu list;
- target coordinates can be resolved from Simbad database names.
