VMDARK(7) vimos recipes VMDARK(7)

NAME

vmdark - Create a master dark from set of raw dark frames.

SYNOPSIS

esorex vmdark [OPTIONS] FILE.sof

DESCRIPTION

This recipe is used to create a master dark frame from a set of raw dark frames.

Input files:

DO category: Type: Explanation: Required: DARK Raw Dark exposure Y MASTER_BIAS Calib Master bias Y CCD_TABLE Calib Bad pixel table .

Output files:

DO category: Data type: Explanation: MASTER_DARK FITS image Master dark

A CCD table must be specified only if a bad pixel cleaning is requested.

For more details, please refer to the VIMOS Pipeline User´s Guide.

OPTIONS

--AllowSingleFrames <bool>
Frame combination method is ignored. (bool; default: True). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is vimos.Parameters.stacking.singleframes [default = True].
--StackMethod <str>
Frame combination method. (str; default: ´Median´). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is vimos.Parameters.stacking.method [default = Median].
--KSigmaLow <float>
Low threshold for K-sigma clipping method. (float; default: 5.0). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is vimos.Parameters.stacking.ksigma.low [default = 5.0].
--KSigmaHigh <float>
High threshold for K-sigma clipping method. (float; default: 5.0). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is vimos.Parameters.stacking.ksigma.high [default = 5.0].
--MinRejection <int>
Number of lowest rejected values for rejection method. (int; default: 1). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is vimos.Parameters.stacking.minmax.minimum [default = 1].
--MaxRejection <int>
Number of highest rejected values for rejection method. (int; default: 1). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is vimos.Parameters.stacking.minmax.maximum [default = 1].
--BiasMethod <str>
Bias removal method. (str; default: ´Zmaster´). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is vimos.Parameters.bias.removing.method [default = Zmaster].
--CleanBadPixel <bool>
Bad pixel correction on master dark. (bool; default: False). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is vimos.Parameters.badpixel.clean [default = False].
--CleanCosmic <bool>
Cosmic ray events cleaning from raw darks. (bool; default: True). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is vimos.Parameters.cosmics.clean [default = True].
--CosmicThreshold <float>
Threshold to identify cosmic rays candidates. (float; default: 4.0). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is vimos.Parameters.cosmics.threshold [default = 4.0].
--CosmicRatio <float>
Min ratio between peak and nearby pixels for a cosmic ray. (float; default: 2.0). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is vimos.Parameters.cosmics.ratio [default = 2.0].
--ComputeQC <bool>
Compute QC1 parameters (bool; default: True). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is vimos.Parameters.quality.enable [default = True].

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.
