I am searching and downloading H-alpha images covered by the instruments of the GONG network using Fido sunpy’s interface at a cadence of 60 seconds. Sample code to fetch results look like this:
search_cadence = 60 # in seconds results = Fido.search(attrs.Time(start_time, end_time), # time interval VSOInstrument(inst).inst_obj, # instrument attrs.Physobs.intensity, # filter for images attrs.Sample(search_cadence * u.second) # sampling rate )
The cadence with which I want images is fixed i.e 60 seconds.
When I try to set the time interval of 10 years (end_time = start_time + 10 years), I am getting a result of 10,000 images and when I try to set the time interval of 1 month (end_time = start_time + 1 month), then again I am getting a result of 10,000 images.
It seems like there is some kind of threshold set that Fido.result returns a maximum of 10,000 images after some particular time interval difference.
Can anyone guide me on how can I adjust this threshold value so that I can get more than 10,000 images over the course of 10 years or are there any specifications that I’m missing?
Thanks in advance!
