The PSF table stores a point spread function in form of a histogram (see https://github.com/open-gamma-ray-astro/gamma-astro-data-formats/blob/master/source/irfs/psf/psf_table/index.rst).

The class GCTAPsfTable was implemented that handles the response format. For illustration, the radial profile of the on-axis PSF at 1 TeV from a H.E.S.S. example file is shown below. I’m a bit concerned by the high noise and the structures in that profile. It needs to be seen how this impacts the likelihood computations.
