Using CLEANest

The example in the manual for using CLEANest only shows what amounts to the very last step of the process after all of the approximate frequencies of interest have been identified. The real work and the major benefit of CLEANEST is in identifying those frequencies. I have attached a PDF of the entire process of applying CLEANest to the same star dataset (as far as I can determine) from start to finish including a final check to avoid a potential confounding condition in applying CLEANest.

I would like corrections, comments, suggestions and, most of all, feedback on whether this document is useful in explaining and clarifying the process of using the CLEANest tool in VStar.  This is not an explanation of the theory behind CLEANest. It is only an explanation and step-by-step example of how to use it in VStar. 

Thanks for your assistance
