Cheddar is the special expert's tool for preparation of MIDI (and maybe other VLTI) observations. It shows elevation, position angle and length of the projected baseline for a list of targets during one night.

Download and Installation

All you need is a computer with tcl/tk installed and this tarball (Cheddar version 2.6).

Ungzip it, untar it, cd to the "Cheddar" directory, and start it:

	./cheddar test.cheddar
There is also a Readme-file which, of course, nobody ever reads.


The main window (before version 2.5):

The baseline window:
