MUSE_AMPL(7) muse recipes MUSE_AMPL(7)

NAME

muse_ampl - Determine the instrumental throughput from exposures taken with the pico-amplifier / photo diode readings.
 

SYNOPSIS

esorex muse_ampl [OPTIONS] FILE.sof
 

DESCRIPTION

This recipe combines several separate amplifier images (flat-fields with special FITS headers containing pico amplifier measurements) into one master image file and computes the instrumental throughput per IFU (and slice). Processing trims the raw data and records the overscan statistics, subtracts the bias (taking account of the overscan, if overscan is not &none&), and optionally, the dark from each raw input image, converts them from adu to count, scales them according to their exposure time, and combines them using input parameters. To compute the throughput the image is converted into a pixel table, the flux is then integrated over the given filter band, and the ratio of the expected flux (FITS header INS.AMPL2.CURR) to measured flux is taken, in the same units. If a geometry table was given as input, the relative area of the IFUs is taken into account when computing the flux per unit area. The resulting ratio is the instrument efficiency (throughput) and saved as QC parameters for the whole input image and per slice in the output pixel table.
 

OPTIONS

--nifu <long>
IFU to handle. If set to 0, all IFUs are processed serially. If set to -1, all IFUs are processed in parallel. (long; default: 0). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is muse.muse_ampl.nifu [default = 0].
--overscan <str>
If this is "none", stop when detecting discrepant overscan levels (see ovscsigma), for "offset" it assumes that the mean overscan level represents the real offset in the bias levels of the exposures involved, and adjusts the data accordingly; for "vpoly", a polynomial is fit to the vertical overscan and subtracted from the whole quadrant. (str; default: ´vpoly´). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is muse.muse_ampl.overscan [default = vpoly].
--ovscreject <str>
This influences how values are rejected when computing overscan statistics. Either no rejection at all ("none"), rejection using the DCR algorithm ("dcr"), or rejection using an iterative constant fit ("fit"). (str; default: ´dcr´). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is muse.muse_ampl.ovscreject [default = dcr].
--ovscsigma <float>
If the deviation of mean overscan levels between a raw input image and the reference image is higher than |ovscsigma x stdev|, stop the processing. If overscan="vpoly", this is used as sigma rejection level for the iterative polynomial fit (the level comparison is then done afterwards with |100 x stdev| to guard against incompatible settings). Has no effect for overscan="offset". (float; default: 30.0). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is muse.muse_ampl.ovscsigma [default = 30.0].
--ovscignore <long>
The number of pixels of the overscan adjacent to the data section of the CCD that are ignored when computing statistics or fits. (long; default: 3). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is muse.muse_ampl.ovscignore [default = 3].
--combine <str>
Type of combination to use (str; default: ´sigclip´). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is muse.muse_ampl.combine [default = sigclip].
--nlow <long>
Number of minimum pixels to reject with minmax (long; default: 1). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is muse.muse_ampl.nlow [default = 1].
--nhigh <long>
Number of maximum pixels to reject with minmax (long; default: 1). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is muse.muse_ampl.nhigh [default = 1].
--nkeep <long>
Number of pixels to keep with minmax (long; default: 1). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is muse.muse_ampl.nkeep [default = 1].
--lsigma <float>
Low sigma for pixel rejection with sigclip (float; default: 3.0). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is muse.muse_ampl.lsigma [default = 3.0].
--hsigma <float>
High sigma for pixel rejection with sigclip (float; default: 3.0). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is muse.muse_ampl.hsigma [default = 3.0].
--fbeam <float>
Factor to describe the widening of the beam from the focal plane to photo diode 2. (float; default: 1.1). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is muse.muse_ampl.fbeam [default = 1.1].
--temp <float>
Lamp temperature [K] used to create the black body function. (float; default: 3200.0). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is muse.muse_ampl.temp [default = 3200.0].
--savemaster <bool>
Save the processed and combined master image before any concolution is done. (bool; default: False). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is muse.muse_ampl.savemaster [default = False].
--savetable <bool>
Save the table with all the processed pixel values. (bool; default: False). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is muse.muse_ampl.savetable [default = False].
--merge <bool>
Merge output products from different IFUs into a common file. (bool; default: False). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is muse.muse_ampl.merge [default = False].
 
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.
