The ADASS newsgroup hierarchy was established to not only provide a place outside the mainstream news groups for IRAF discussions, but as the name implies, for discussion of any astronomical data analysis software. The IRAF Project will archive all articles submitted, sites desiring a local feed should contact news@iraf.noao.edu. A keyword search of the archive is permitted. On-Line subscription to a mailing list of the newsgroups is also available.

Users may post-to or read-via-email-subscription these newsgroups, please consult to IRAF Listserver Web page for details. If your browser supports it, you may also post or read the groups by clicking on the links below.

General Astronomical Data Analysis Software and Systems topics:

Topics relating to the Image Reduction and Analysis Facility:

Topics relating to the FITS Image Format:

If these links do not work, perhaps your default NNTP server does not have access to the adass news groups. Try specifying:
setenv NNTPSERVER iraf.noao.edu
before entering your web client, or by adjusting the news options in your browser.

Netscape users should select "Preferences" from the Options menu, then in the Preferences screen select "Mail and News", and enter iraf.noao.edu for the News (NNTP) Server.

Watch out that the above doesn't clobber any existing ".newsrc" file.


Posting Messages/Questions

Messages or questions may be posted to any of the ADASS newsgroups by sending mail to the "dashed" form of the newsgroup/list name. For example. Messages should be sent individually to each group to avoid possibles problems with cross-postings. Questions may also be send to iraf@noao.edu to contact the main technical support line if a more immediate response is required.
