muse_qi_mask - Create image masks for use with the quick image reconstruction.
Trace and wavelength calibration tables (24 of them each, one per IFU) are used
to build wavelength maps. If the input data is binned, the wavelength maps are
binned in the same way (averaging of pixels). The wavelength maps are then
thresholded to create masks of the desired wavelength range. Finally, the mask
is &untrimmed&, i.e. empty regions for the pre- and overscans are
added (in a simple way, assuming quadrants of equal size, and padding of 32
pixels on all quadrant edges). Note: this recipe is not part of the main MUSE
pipeline but to be used in the integration phase to create image masks until
the system is fully qualified. It therefore does only minimal error checking.
- --nifu <long>
- IFU to handle. If set to 0, all IFUs are processed
serially, which is the recommendation for this recipe, since only then all
extensions end up in the same output file. (long; default: 0). The full
name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is
muse.muse_qi_mask.nifu [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.

Basic documentation about the EsoRex program can be found at the esorex (1) man
It is possible to call the pipelines from python using the python-cpl package.
