The most usual way to send large binary files, such as images, via e-mail
or newsgroup is first to compress the file using any appropriate program
or format, such as .ZIP, .Z, etc., and then to UUENCODE the result. This
is then sent as a message or post. I would presume that the resulting
file would be fairly large, and thus not suitable for exploding via
SeeSat-L to about 100 sites unless it is of nearly universal interest. A
better way to distribute it would be to send it to Bart, with a request to
place it in the SeeSat-L archive, make it available, and post a short
pointer message informing all SeeSat-L recipients of its availability. I
am grateful to Bart for this facility. Obviously, anyone wishing to view
the image would then request it from the archive, file it, UUDECODE it,
decompress it (PKUNZIP, uncomp, etc.) and input it to a viewer.
Just out of curiosity, have you verified that 23132 would have described
an arc of the observed angular length during the exposure?


A parent is a terrible thing to waste.
