We review some of the basic guidelines used to plan, execute and analyse
multi-field observations at the Owens Valley Radio Observatory millimeter
wave array. As a working example we discuss our observations of the inner
5.5'x5.5' of the Serpens cloud core.
The results of our observations of this proto-cluster core suggest that
the stellar IMF is determined during the core fragmentation process.
