where ["RA string"] is formatted as "hh:mm:ss.ss" and ["DEC string"] is is formatted as "dd:mm:ss.ss" (including the sign: "+" or "-") you can also include multiple pointings by separating them by a spacecomma (,). The beamformer will output full polarisation (Stokes I, Q, U & V) PSRFITS files unless you used the --summed flag. The summed option only outputs Stokes I which means you can't create polarisation profiles but uses a quarter of the storage and for that reasons is useful for large scale searches.
