NAME

muse_scipost_make_cube - Make a MUSE cube from a MUSE pixel table.
 

SYNOPSIS

esorex muse_scipost_make_cube [OPTIONS] FILE.sof
 

DESCRIPTION

This recipe takes a pixel table and resamples it to either a FITS cube or a Euro3D table and optionally to a stacked spectrum. This is a part of the muse_scipost recipe.
 

OPTIONS

--lambdamin <float>
Cut off the data below this wavelength after loading the pixel table(s). (float; default: 4000.0). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is muse.muse_scipost_make_cube.lambdamin [default = 4000.0].
--lambdamax <float>
Cut off the data above this wavelength after loading the pixel table(s). (float; default: 10000.0). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is muse.muse_scipost_make_cube.lambdamax [default = 10000.0].
--resample <str>
The resampling technique to use for the final output cube. (str; default: ´drizzle´). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is muse.muse_scipost_make_cube.resample [default = drizzle].
--dx <float>
Horizontal step size for resampling (in arcsec or pixel). The following defaults are taken when this value is set to 0.0: 0.2´´ for WFM, 0.075´´ for NFM, 1.0 if data is in pixel units. (float; default: 0.0). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is muse.muse_scipost_make_cube.dx [default = 0.0].
--dy <float>
Vertical step size for resampling (in arcsec or pixel). The following defaults are taken when this value is set to 0.0: 0.2´´ for WFM, 0.075´´ for NFM, 1.0 if data is in pixel units. (float; default: 0.0). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is muse.muse_scipost_make_cube.dy [default = 0.0].
--dlambda <float>
Wavelength step size (in Angstrom). Natural instrument sampling is used, if this is 0.0 (float; default: 0.0). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is muse.muse_scipost_make_cube.dlambda [default = 0.0].
--crtype <str>
Type of statistics used for detection of cosmic rays during final resampling. "iraf" uses the variance information, "mean" uses standard (mean/stdev) statistics, "median" uses median and the median median of the absolute median deviation. (str; default: ´median´). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is muse.muse_scipost_make_cube.crtype [default = median].
--crsigma <float>
Sigma rejection factor to use for cosmic ray rejection during final resampling. A zero or negative value switches cosmic ray rejection off. (float; default: 15.0). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is muse.muse_scipost_make_cube.crsigma [default = 15.0].
--rc <float>
Critical radius for the "renka" resampling method. (float; default: 1.25). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is muse.muse_scipost_make_cube.rc [default = 1.25].
--pixfrac <float>
Pixel down-scaling factor for the "drizzle" resampling method. (float; default: 0.8). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is muse.muse_scipost_make_cube.pixfrac [default = 0.8].
--ld <long>
Number of adjacent pixels to take into account during resampling in all three directions (loop distance); this affects all resampling methods except "nearest". (long; default: 1). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is muse.muse_scipost_make_cube.ld [default = 1].
--format <str>
Type of output file format, "Cube" is a standard FITS cube with NAXIS=3 and multiple extensions (for data and variance). The extended "x" formats include the reconstructed image(s) in FITS image extensions within the same file. (str; default: ´Cube´). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is muse.muse_scipost_make_cube.format [default = Cube].
--stacked <bool>
If true, write an additional output file in form of a 2D stacked image (x direction is pseudo-spatial, y direction is wavelength). (bool; default: False). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is muse.muse_scipost_make_cube.stacked [default = False].
--filter <str>
The filter name(s) to be used for the output field-of-view image. Each name has to correspond to an EXTNAME in an extension of the FILTER_LIST file. If an unsupported filter name is given, creation of the respective image is omitted. If multiple filter names are given, they have to be comma separated. (str; default: ´white´). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is muse.muse_scipost_make_cube.filter [default = white].
 
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.
