Abstract: The LOFAR radio telescope can operate in various modes, one of them being synthesis imaging. The data are stored in MeasurementSets for later processing, but can also be used for detection of slow transients by making an image per time sample. This paper describes the flagging, calibration and imaging steps to form such images, which can be fed into another pipeline (TraP) for transient detection. More accurate a posteriori processing is also possible using the stored MeasurementSets as the data source.
