visir_util_img_std_cat - Convert ASCII-file(s) to a FITS standard star catalog
esorex visir_util_img_std_cat [OPTIONS] FILE.sof
This recipe generates a FITS standard star catalog for imaging from one or more ASCII-files.
Each line in the text file must have 45 fields separated by white-space.
The first field is the star name, e.g. ´HD108903´ which will be stored in a table column labeled ´STARS´.
The 3 next fields are the RA (hh mm ss) which will be stored in degrees in a table column labeled ´RA´ - all three are non-negative and hh and mm are integer.
The 3 next fields are the DEC (dd mm ss) which will be stored in degrees in a table column labeled ´DEC´ - all three are non-negative, dd and mm are integer, while dd has either a ´+´ or a ´-´ prepended (including -00).
The next field is the spectral type which will be stored in a table column labeled ´SP_TYPE´.
The 31 next fields are the JY values for the 31 supported image filters.
The 6 next fields are the JY values for the 6 supported spectral filters.
All JY values must be positive.
For each filter the JY value is stored in a table column labeled with the filter name.
The 37 filter names are hard-coded in the recipe.
Lines beginning with a hash (#) are treated as comments.
The ASCII-input should be tagged IMG_LINES_ASCII, but all input files will currently be processed regardless.
Note that it is possible to create a configuration file containing these options, along with suitable default values. Please refer to the details provided by the 'esorex --help' command.

An overview over the existing ESO pipelines can be found on the web page https://www.eso.org/sci/software/pipelines/.
Basic documentation about the EsoRex program can be found at the esorex (1) man page.
It is possible to call the pipelines from python using the python-cpl package. See https://packages.python.org/python-cpl/index.html for further information.
