Type: information only.
Information: Convolving function type 6 = Exp * BessJ1 (x) / x
Function = BESSJ1 ( ABS(U) / PARM(2) ) / ( ABS(U) / PARM(2) )
* EXP ( - ((ABS(U)/PARM(3)) ** PARM(4)) )
PARM(1) = Support size. 0 --> 3.0 cells
0 --> PARM(2) = 1.55 cells
0 --> PARM(3) = 2.52 cells
0 --> PARM(4) = 2.0
See memos by Fred Schwab for more details; large support size
may have undesired results. Changing these can put divides by
zero in the map plane and can reduce the degree of alias
suppression. See the VLA Scientific Memo Series 123, 124, 129,
and 131. See also Synthesis Imaging in Radio Astronomy, ASP
Conference Series, Volume 6, pages 130-134.
Types 6 and -6 are rectilinear (in X and Y separately), types 16
and -16 are circular (in R = sqrt(X*X+Y*Y)).
Types -6 and -16 are for single-dish use and have units of arc
seconds for PARM(1) with default = single-dish-beam_size and for
PARM(2) with default = 1.55 * single-dish-beam_size/3 and for
PARM(3) with default = 2.52 * single-dish-beam_size/3.
