Definition of the position algnle (Insrot_PA)

FOCAS IFU has the rectangle FoV (13.5" x 10.0"), and the longer side is the slice-lenght direction.
The position angle (Insrot_PA in an OPE file) is defined to be the slice-lenght direction to the sky slit (red arrow in the figure below).
Default Insrot_PA is 0 degree.
The sky slit is located about 5.2 arcmin far toward the position angle direction. It is importatnt to confirm no bright source in the sky slit.
