Subject: Need tables for Figures 13 and 37 in the XMM Users Handbook

I am calculating the expected area/flux limit curve for an archival analysis of
some XMM pointings and have been referring to figures 13 and 37 of the XMM
handbook (Vignetting for off-axis observations, and minimum flux for EPIC
camera).

Do the tables which produced these curves exist online?  I cannot seem to find
them.  Can someone send me these tables?

Thanks!

Hello Eilat,

Unfortunately, fig. 37 is directly grabbed from reference paper Watson, 2001,
A&A, 365, L51, and there is no chance for us to re-generate it. 

With regard to Fig. 13, you might have a look to SAS task calview . It allows to
examine a number of calibration parameters, in particular the dependency of the
vignetting with energy, off-axis angle (theta) and azimuth (phi). Note that the
first output is a Grace plot, but actual data-points can be saved to a file via
menu bar option Data->Export->ASCII...

Sincerely,

Pedro
