Why Topics

The "why" topics are a second layer to the threads; they provide supplemental information for the user that is interested in digging deeper. Some of the topics highlight common pitfalls and subtleties in the CIAO software, others describe aspects of the Chandra Observatory and data obtained with it. The documents also provide information on why certain science decisions are made, enabling the user to tailor the analysis to a particular dataset.

Please email the Helpdesk if you have suggestions for topics that you would like to see discussed here.
