Generation from In-Orbit Data

The multi-Gaussian fit is based on in-orbit observations of bright p[oint sources. In particular, it accounts for the triangular shape of the FM2 telescope.

The King function parameters have been calculated from fits to the radial profiles of bright point sources observed in-orbit.
