kmos_gen_telluric - Generate a TELLURIC frame



kmos_gen_telluric - Generate a TELLURIC frame


esorex kmos_gen_telluric [OPTIONS] FILE.sof


This recipe creates the TELLURIC frame needed by kmos_sci_red by merging the TELLURIC (produced by kmos_std_star), the static RESPONЅE frame and the TELLURIC_CORR (produced with molecfit).
The way the frames are combined is controlled by the --method parameter:
- 0 (default) : use TELLURIC and get zpoint from TELLURIC
If TELLURIC missing, use RESPONSE and get zpoint from RESPONSE
- 1 : use TELLURIC_CORR and get zpoint from TELLURIC_CORR
- 2 : use RESPONSE and get zpoint from TELLURIC
If TELLURIC missing, get zpoint from RESPONSE
For missing ZPOINTs, use the average of other IFUs for the
same detector.
- 3 : use RESPONSE x TELLURIC_CORR and get zpoint from TELLURIC_CORR

--method <long>
How the TELLURIC is generated (long; default: 0). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is kmos.kmos_gen_telluric.method [default = 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.
