I found the table at

http://xmm.vilspa.esa.es/external/xmm_user_support/documentation/uhb_2.1/node28.html

quite useful to have an idea if my data are affected by pileup. However, I often
encounter data which were observed in a science mode not listed in the table.
They are typically "Prime Partial W2-3-4-5". I wonder if it is right to assume
that, looking at table:

http://xmmssc-www.star.le.ac.uk/newpages/modes.html

I associate Prime Partial W2 and W4 to Small Window and Prime Partial W3 and W5
to large Window, having the same pixel dimensions.

Thank you,

Stefano

In the UHB we are listing only mode names as they are visible in the
remote proposal system, too. The W? MOS nomenclature was used in the early
phase of the mission and might still be present as header keywords
and in SSC products. Please, find below a table of corresponding MOS mode
names:

Prime Full Window  = full frame
Prime Partial RFS  = refresh frame store
Prime Partial W2   = small window
Prime Partial W3   = large window
Prime Partial W4   = small window free running (not offered)
Prime Partial W5   = large window free running (not offered)
Prime Partila W6   = full frame two nodes
Fast Uncompressed  = timing uncompressed

Cheers,
Matthias
