OPTIONS

--magsyserr <float>
Systematic error in magnitude (float; default: 0.01). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is fors.fors_img_science.magsyserr [default = 0.01].
--sex_exe <str>
SExtractor executable (str; default: ´/usr/bin/sex´). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is fors.fors_img_science.sex_exe [default = /usr/bin/sex].
--sex_config <str>
SExtractor configuration file (str; default: ´/usr/share/cpl- plugins/fors-5.3.23/config/fors.sex´). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is fors.fors_img_science.sex_config [default = /usr/share/cpl-plugins/fors-5.3.23/config/fors.sex].
--sex_mag <str>
SExtractor magnitude (str; default: ´MAG_APER´). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is fors.fors_img_science.sex_mag [default = MAG_APER].
--sex_magerr <str>
SExtractor magnitude error (str; default: ´MAGERR_APER´). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is fors.fors_img_science.sex_magerr [default = MAGERR_APER].
--sex_radius <long>
Background error map median filter radius (unbinned pixels) (long; default: 64). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is fors.fors_img_science.sex_radius [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.
