VIMOS_IMA_FRINGE(7) vimos recipes VIMOS_IMA_FRINGE(7)

NAME

vimos_ima_fringe - Fringe frame creation for imaging

SYNOPSIS

esorex vimos_ima_fringe [OPTIONS] FILE.sof

DESCRIPTION

vimos_ima_fringe -- VIMOS fringe frame creation recipe.

Take a list of science frames and correct them to remove bias, dark and flat field signatures. Combine the images to form a new master fringe frame

The program accepts the following files in the SOF:

Tag Description

OBJECT A list of raw science images MASTER_BIAS A master bias frame MASTER_DARK A master dark frame MASTER_TWILIGHT_FLAT A master flat frame MASTER_CONF A master confidence map MASTER_READGAIN A master readgain table All of these are required.

OPTIONS

--prettynames <bool>
Use pretty product names? (bool; default: False). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is vimos.vimos_ima_fringe.prettynames [default = False].
--psm_ipix <int>
Minimum pixel area for each detected object (int; default: 5). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is vimos.vimos_ima_fringe.psm_ipix [default = 5].
--psm_thresh <float>
Detection threshold in sigma above sky (float; default: 3.0). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is vimos.vimos_ima_fringe.psm_thresh [default = 3.0].
--psm_nbsize <int>
Background smoothing box size (int; default: 64). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is vimos.vimos_ima_fringe.psm_nbsize [default = 64].

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.
