UVES_CAL_ORDERPOS(7) uves recipes UVES_CAL_ORDERPOS(7)

NAME

uves_cal_orderpos - Defines echelle order positions
 

SYNOPSIS

esorex uves_cal_orderpos [OPTIONS] FILE.sof
 

DESCRIPTION

The recipe defines the order positions in an echelle image. The orders are initially detected by means of a Hough transformation, the orders are then traced, and the positions are finally fitted with a global polynomial.
Expected input frames are narrow flat fields, ORDER_FLAT_xxx, or standard stars, STANDARD_xxx, where xxx is ´BLUE´ or ´RED´, and optionally for each chip a DRS setup table (DRS_TABLE_BLUE, DRS_TABLE_REDL, DRS_TABLE_REDU) or guess order table (ORDER_GUESS_TAB_BLUE, ORDER_GUESS_TAB_REDL, ORDER_GUESS_TAB_REDU, or, for backward compatibility, ORDER_TABLE_BLUE, ORDER_TABLE_REDL, ORDER_TABLE_REDU). The recipe processes only the first raw frame found.
Output is one (or two if input is a red frame) order table(s) (UVES: ORDER_TABLE_(BLUE|REDL|REDU); FLAMES: FIB_ORDEF_(REDL|REDU) contaning the columns: X : Position along x Order : Relative order number Y : Order line centroid location Yfit : The fitted order location dY : Uncertainty of Y dYfit_Square : Variance of Yfit Residual : Y - Yfit Residual_Square : Residual^2 OrderRMS : Root mean squared residual of initial
one-dimensional linear fit of order
 
The bivariate fit polynomial itself is stored in table extension no. 2.
The 3rd table extension contains a table that defines the active fibre traces and their positions (for support of FLAMES/UVES)
 
 

OPTIONS

--debug <bool>
Whether or not to save intermediate results to local directory (bool; default: False). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is uves.debug [default = False].
--plotter <str>
Any plots produced by the recipe are redirected to the command specified by this parameter. The plotting command must contain the substring ´gnuplot´ and must be able to parse gnuplot syntax on its standard input. Valid examples of such a command may include ´gnuplot -persist´ and ´cat > mygnuplot$$.gp´. A finer control of the plotting options can be obtained by writing an executable script, e.g. my_gnuplot.pl, that executes gnuplot after setting the desired gnuplot options (e.g. set terminal pslatex color). To turn off plotting, set this parameter to ´no´ (str; default: ´no´). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is uves.plotter [default = no].
--process_chip <str>
For RED arm data process the redl, redu, or both chip(s) (str; default: ´both´). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is uves.process_chip [default = both].
--use_guess_tab <long>
If a Guess order table is provided this parameter set how it is used:0: No usage, 1: use it to set lower/upper Y raws where order are searched 2: the order table try to fully match the guess (long; default: 1). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is uves_cal_orderpos.preproc.use_guess_tab [default = 1].
--radx <long>
Half X size of median filtering window (long; default: 2). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is uves_cal_orderpos.preproc.radx [default = 2].
--rady <long>
Half Y size of median filtering window (long; default: 1). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is uves_cal_orderpos.preproc.rady [default = 1].
--mmethod <str>
Background subtraction method. If equal to ´median´ the background is sampled using the median of a sub-window. If ´minimum´, the minimum sub-window value is used. If ´no´, no background subtraction is done. (str; default: ´median´). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is uves_cal_orderpos.preproc.mmethod [default = median].
--backsubgrid <long>
Number of grid points (in x- and y-direction) used to estimate the background (mode=poly). (long; default: 50). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is uves_cal_orderpos.preproc.backsubgrid [default = 50].
--backsubradiusy <long>
The height (in pixels) of the background sampling window is (2*radiusy + 1). This parameter is not corrected for binning. (long; default: 2). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is uves_cal_orderpos.preproc.backsubradiusy [default = 2].
--backsubkappa <float>
The value of kappa in the one-sided kappa-sigma clipping used to estimate the background (mode=poly). (float; default: 4.0). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is uves_cal_orderpos.preproc.backsubkappa [default = 4.0].
--backsubdegx <long>
Degree (in x) of polynomial used to estimate the background (mode=poly). (long; default: 2). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is uves_cal_orderpos.preproc.backsubdegx [default = 2].
--backsubdegy <long>
Degree (in y) of polynomial used to estimate the background (mode=poly). (long; default: 2). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is uves_cal_orderpos.preproc.backsubdegy [default = 2].
--samplewidth <long>
Separation of sample traces (used by Hough transform) in input image (long; default: 50). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is uves_cal_orderpos.hough.samplewidth [default = 50].
--minslope <float>
Minimum possible line slope. This should be the ´physical´ slope on the chip, i.e. not taking binning factors into account, which is handled by the recipe (float; default: 0.0). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is uves_cal_orderpos.hough.minslope [default = 0.0].
--maxslope <float>
Maximum possible line slope (float; default: 0.2). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is uves_cal_orderpos.hough.maxslope [default = 0.2].
--sloperes <long>
Resolution (width in pixels) of Hough space (long; default: 120). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is uves_cal_orderpos.hough.sloperes [default = 120].
--pthres <float>
In automatic mode, or if the number of orders to detect is read from a guess table, the detection of new lines stops when the intensity of a candidate line drops to less than ´pthres´ times the intensity of the previous detection. (float; default: 0.2). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is uves_cal_orderpos.hough.pthres [default = 0.2].
--tracestep <long>

--minthresh <float>
The minimum threshold value is (min + minthres*(max - min)). Here ´min´ and ´max´ are the lowest and highest pixel values in the central bin of the order (float; default: 0.2). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is uves_cal_orderpos.trace.minthresh [default = 0.2].
--maxgap <float>
If the order line drops below detection threshold, the order tracing algorithm will try to jump a gap of maximum size ´maxgap´ multiplied by the image width (float; default: 0.2). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is uves_cal_orderpos.trace.maxgap [default = 0.2].
--maxrms <float>
