Observing 10/20

I don't have a better place to post this one, so here it is:

My automated fitter (Gaussfitting Cube Collapser) has come a long way. I now adaptively choose to fit 1, 2, or 3 Gaussian components to output to a data cube.

The purpose of that code is primarily to find a two-dimensional way to display information about the 3D structure, specifically about the presence/absence of outflows. Outflows will inevitably be confused with multiple velocity components, but they are also likely to be convolved with them.
