hawki_detector_noise - HAWKI detector noise recipe

HAWKI_DETECTOR_NOISE(7) hawki recipes HAWKI_DETECTOR_NOISE(7)

NAME

hawki_detector_noise - HAWKI detector noise recipe
 

SYNOPSIS

esorex hawki_detector_noise [OPTIONS] FILE.sof
 

DESCRIPTION

hawki_detector_noise -- HAWKI recipe to find readnoise and gain.
Compute the readnoise and gain for the hawki detectors using two dark frames and two flat field frames. Both must have been exposed with NDIT=1 The program accepts the following files in the SOF:
 

Tag Description
 

DARK A list of raw dark images
FLAT_TWILIGHT A list of raw flat images
MASTER_BPM Optional master bad pixel mask or
MASTER_CONF Optional master confidence map If a master bad pixel mask or confidence map is included then thebad pixels will be flagged during the statistical analysis
 
 

OPTIONS

--thresh <float>
Rejection threshold in sigma above background (float; default: 5.0). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is hawki.hawki_detector_noise.thresh [default = 5.0].
 
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.
