NAME

muse_standard - Create a flux response curve from a standard star exposure.
 

SYNOPSIS

esorex muse_standard [OPTIONS] FILE.sof
 

DESCRIPTION

Merge pixel tables from all IFUs and correct for differential atmospheric refraction. To derive the flux response curve, integrate the flux of all objects detected within the field of view using the given profile. Select one object as the standard star (either the brightest or the one nearest one, depending on --select) and compare its measured fluxes to tabulated fluxes to derive the sensitivity over wavelength. Postprocess this sensitivity curve to mark wavelength ranges affected by telluric absorption. Interpolate over the telluric regions and derive a telluric correction spectrum for them. The final response cuve is then linearly extrapolated to the largest possible MUSE wavelength range and smoothed (with the method given by --smooth). The derivation of the telluric correction spectrum assumes that the star has a smooth spectrum within the telluric regions. If there are more than one exposure given in the input data, the derivation of the flux response and telluric corrections are done separately for each exposure. For each exposure, the datacube used for flux integration is saved, together with collapsed images for each given filter.
 

OPTIONS

--profile <str>
Type of flux integration to use. "gaussian" and "moffat" use 2D profile fitting, circle and square are non-optimal flux integrators. (str; default: ´moffat´). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is muse.muse_standard.profile [default = moffat].
--select <str>
How to select the star for flux integration, "flux" uses the brightest star in the field, "distance" uses the detection nearest to the approximate coordinates of the reference source. (str; default: ´distance´). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is muse.muse_standard.select [default = distance].
--smooth <str>
How to smooth the response curve before writing it to disk. "none" does not do any kind of smoothing (such a response curve is only useful, if smoothed externally; "median" does a median-filter of 15 Angstrom half-width; "ppoly" fits piecewise cubic polynomials (each one across 2x150 Angstrom width) postprocessed by a sliding average filter of 15 Angstrom half-width. (str; default: ´ppoly´). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is muse.muse_standard.smooth [default = ppoly].
--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_standard.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_standard.lambdamax [default = 10000.0].
--lambdaref <float>
Reference wavelength used for correction of differential atmospheric refraction. The R-band (peak wavelength ~7000 Angstrom) that is usually used for guiding, is close to the central wavelength of MUSE, so a value of 7000.0 Angstrom should be used if nothing else is known. A value less than zero switches DAR correction off. (float; default: 7000.0). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is muse.muse_standard.lambdaref [default = 7000.0].
--darcheck <str>
Carry out a check of the theoretical DAR correction using source centroiding. If "correct" it will also apply an empirical correction. (str; default: ´none´). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is muse.muse_standard.darcheck [default = none].
--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. If the zeropoint QC parameters are wanted, make sure to add "Johnson_V,Cousins_R,Cousins_I". (str; default: ´white´). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is muse.muse_standard.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.
