Subject: visibility question
Hello,

I'm writing a Chandra proposal now (due Friday!) and part of my
proposal relies on knowing the visibility of some of my sources
with XMM for the coming year.  I'm looking at the web XMM visibility
tool at http://xmm.vilspa.esa.es/external/xmm_sched/vis_check/index.shtml
however it only provides visibilities up to revolution 760.  As the
XMM AO2 rev range was 450-650, I strongly suspect that 760 will get us
only through half of XMM AO3, whereas I need to know the visibilities
of sources throughout XMM AO3.  Is there another tool somewhere that
I can use?

Thanks,
Vicky

Dear Dr. Kaspi,

The XMM orbit is changing slowly with time and there was a recent orbit
correction manoeuver; therefore, the long range visibility predictions are
somewhat uncertain.

For this reason, the current Web tool can provide accurate information only up
to rev. 760.
