KMOS_DARK(7) kmos recipes KMOS_DARK(7)

NAME

kmos_dark - Create master dark frame & bad pixel mask
 

SYNOPSIS

esorex kmos_dark [OPTIONS] FILE.sof
 

DESCRIPTION

This recipe calculates the master dark frame.
It is recommended to provide three or more dark exposures to produce a reasonable master with associated noise.
Input files:
DO CATG Type Explanation Required #Frames
------- ----- ----------- -------- -------
DARK RAW Dark exposures Y 1-n
(at least 3 frames recommended)
 
Output files:

MASTER_DARK F2D Calculated master dark frames
BADPIXEL_DARK B2D Associated badpixel frames
 
 
 

OPTIONS

--oscan <bool>
Apply Overscan Correction (bool; default: True). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is kmos.kmos_dark.oscan [default = True].
--pos_bad_pix_rej <float>
The positive rejection threshold for bad pixels (float; default: 50.0). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is kmos.kmos_dark.pos_bad_pix_rej [default = 50.0].
--neg_bad_pix_rej <float>
The negative rejection threshold for bad pixels (float; default: 50.0). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is kmos.kmos_dark.neg_bad_pix_rej [default = 50.0].
--file_extension <bool>
Controls if EXPTIME should be appended to product filenames (bool; default: False). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is kmos.kmos_dark.file_extension [default = False].
--cmethod <str>
Apply "average", "median", "sum", "min_max." or "ksigma". (str; default: ´ksigma´). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is kmos.kmos_dark.cmethod [default = ksigma].
--cpos_rej <float>
The positive rejection threshold for kappa-sigma-clipping (sigma). (float; default: 3.0). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is kmos.kmos_dark.cpos_rej [default = 3.0].
--cneg_rej <float>
The negative rejection threshold for kappa-sigma-clipping (sigma). (float; default: 3.0). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is kmos.kmos_dark.cneg_rej [default = 3.0].
--citer <long>
The number of iterations for kappa-sigma-clipping. (long; default: 3). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is kmos.kmos_dark.citer [default = 3].
--cmax <long>
The number of maximum pixel values to clip with min/max-clipping. (long; default: 1). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is kmos.kmos_dark.cmax [default = 1].
--cmin <long>
The number of minimum pixel values to clip with min/max-clipping. (long; default: 1). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is kmos.kmos_dark.cmin [default = 1].
 
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.
