Fast chain capabilities

The Fast mode chain processes only event lists. It internally builds tracking shifted and field-corrected images of the Fast mode windows. These are searched for sources, and light curves for any detected objects are extracted from the event list files. If more than one source is detected within the window, the output data set will contain a light curve for each source.
