NAME

gimasterbias - Creates a master bias image from a set of raw biases.
 

SYNOPSIS

esorex gimasterbias [OPTIONS] FILE.sof
 

DESCRIPTION

For detailed information please refer to the GIRAFFE pipeline user manual.
It is available at http://www.eso.org/pipelines.
 

OPTIONS

--stack-method <str>
Stacking method: average, median, minmax or ksigma (str; default: ´average´). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is giraffe.stacking.method [default = average].
--stack-ksigmalow <float>
Lower threshold multiplier for method ksigma (float; default: 5.0). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is giraffe.stacking.ksigma.low [default = 5.0].
--stack-ksigmahigh <float>
Upper threshold multiplier for method ksigma (float; default: 5.0). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is giraffe.stacking.ksigma.high [default = 5.0].
--stack-minreject <long>
Minimum rejection level for method minmax (long; default: 1). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is giraffe.stacking.minmax.minimum [default = 1].
--stack-maxreject <long>
Maximum rejection level for method minmax (long; default: 1). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is giraffe.stacking.minmax.maximum [default = 1].
--mbias-oscremove <bool>
Remove pre- and over-scan regions from the created master bias image. (bool; default: False). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is giraffe.masterbias.overscan.remove [default = False].
--mbias-bpxclean <bool>
Correct master bias image for bad pixels (bool; default: False). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is giraffe.masterbias.badpixel.clean [default = False].
--bpm-create <bool>
Create bad pixel map using a simple thresholding algorithm. (temporary!) (bool; default: True). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is giraffe.masterbias.bpm.create [default = True].
--bpm-factor <float>
Readout noise multiplier defining the valid range of pixel values for searching bad pixels. (float; default: 5.0). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is giraffe.masterbias.bpm.factor [default = 5.0].
--bpm-frac <float>
Maximum fraction of pixels which may be flagged as ´bad. If more pixels are found to be ´bad a warning is issued. (float; default: 0.15). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is giraffe.masterbias.bpm.fraction [default = 0.15].
 
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.
