Dear XMM help desk

(This is resent message of one that I put from Web
but I am not sure whether the submission was succesful.)

According to the Users handbook, the point spread function
of the X-ray telescope is well represented by a King like
function, but the acrual parameters are not presented.

Could you provide the actual best-fit parameters
for individual energy range? Could you also tell
us what data set did they used to calibrate PSF?
I want to analyse the PSF itself, too.
Many Thanks in advance.

Sincerely

Dear Dr. Yasushi Ikebe,

Please find enclosed the answer from our specialist:
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
the King profiles for the MOS comes from an analysis by the Milano 
group, which has written a full report on it. This report can be 
retrieved at the following address:
  http://www.ifctr.mi.cnr.it/~simona/pub/EPIC-MCT-TN-011.ps.gz

The inclusion of this work in the CCF has been done by Richard 
Saxton. This is described in the CCF release note XMM-CCF-REL-100
http://xmm.vilspa.esa.es/docs/documents/CAL-SRN-0100-0-0.ps.gz
The CCF described in this note contain the parameters of the King profile.

A less complete (as far as I know) analysis of the PN PSF has been 
done by Richard Saxton and Gareth Griffiths, and is also mentionned 
in the CCF release note. I understand from the CCF release note that 
the PN parameters are also in the CCF file.

Best Regards

Philippe
