-Since July 2010 a new antenna control and observing software is used at the Effelsberg 100m telescope. The interface for the observer is still called "OBSINP", like the old system, but it is now a graphical based control program. It allows the control of all observing modes possible at the Effelsberg antenna. This document gives a brief introduction to all the different sections in OBSINP for each observing mode. More details on how to set up and organize observations of different types are given in the individual sections of the [[information_for_astronomers:user_guide:index#observing_with_effelsberg|User Guide]].+Since July 2010 a new antenna control and observing software is used at the Effelsberg 100m telescope.

 All observations are stored and organized by a queue system that allows to prepare the next steps during your current observations are in progress. It also allow to prepare observations in advance for later processing at the telescope. The structure of the program is shown in Fig. 1. All observations are stored and organized by a queue system that allows to prepare the next steps during your current observations are in progress.

 For the preparation of your observations we recommend to prepare a catalog in the [[:vax_catalog|VAX format]] and convert it into the new format afterwards. For the preparation of your observations we recommend to prepare a catalog in the [[:vax_catalog|VAX format]] and convert it into the new format afterwards.
