visir_img_reduce - Combines a stack of chopped, jittered and/or nodded exposures and can compute the sensitivity for standard star observations
 

SYNOPSIS

esorex visir_img_reduce [OPTIONS] FILE.sof
 

DESCRIPTION

This recipe recombines the data observed in chopping/nodding or chopping or nodding modes into one combined image using optionally cross-correlation methods.
The files listed in the Set Of Frames (sof-file) must be tagged: VISIR-observation-file.fits IM_OBS_CHO_NOD_JIT or VISIR-observation-file.fits IM_OBS_CHO_JIT or VISIR-observation-file.fits IM_OBS_NOD_JIT or VISIR-observation-file.fits IM_OBS_DIR_JIT or VISIR-observation-file.fits BURST VISIR-Standard-star-catalog IMG_STD_CATALOG (optional) VISIR-linearty-table.fits LINEARITY_TABLE (optional) Additionally, a bad pixel map with a PRO.CATG of IMG_BPM may be added to the Set Of Frames with tag: BPM.
 

OPTIONS

--planestart <long>
Plane number to start repacking from in each nod cycle,earlier planes are skipped. (long; default: 0). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is visir.visir_util_repack.planestart [default = 0].
--planelimit <long>
Limit number of processed inputplanes. It will repack until at least this number of input images have been processed or the full dataset has been repacked. Always full chop cycles need to be repacked so the number is adjusted upward to the next multiple of images per chop cycle. <= 0 for no limit. (long; default: -1). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is visir.visir_util_repack.planelimit [default = -1].
--trimlow <long>
Burst data only. Number of additional planes to cut from before each plane with chopper movement. (long; default: 0). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is visir.visir_util_repack.trimlow [default = 0].
--trimhigh <long>
Burst data only. Number of additional planes to cut from after each plane with chopper movement. A value of -1 does not skip the plane of the movement. (long; default: 0). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is visir.visir_util_repack.trimhigh [default = 0].
--lincorrect <bool>

--template <str>
Correlation template used to detect shifts and reject bad images. If none given an averaged image is used (str; default: ´NONE´). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is visir.visir_util_detect_shift.template [default = NONE].
--min-correlation <float>
Minimal correlation to the template required to be accepted (float; default: 0.5). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is visir.visir_util_detect_shift.min-correlation [default = 0.5].
--max-shift <float>
Maximal allowed object shift for an image to be accepted (float; default: 10.0). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is visir.visir_util_detect_shift.max-shift [default = 10.0].
--max-mad <float>
Maximal allowed median absolute deviation for an image to be accepted. <= 0 equals no limit (float; default: 0.0). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is visir.visir_util_detect_shift.max-mad [default = 0.0].
--naverage <long>
Number of planes to average before attempting to detect the shifts. (long; default: 1). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is visir.visir_util_detect_shift.naverage [default = 1].
--method <str>
Method to determine beam shifts. xcorrelate: use the cross correlation shift. brightest: use the position of the brightest pixel (str; default: ´xcorrelate´). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is visir.visir_util_detect_shift.method [default = xcorrelate].
--no-shift <bool>
Sets whether to apply the determined shifts in following recipes. Set to TRUE of shifts appear too large. (bool; default: False). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is visir.visir_util_detect_shift.no-shift [default = False].
--no-reject <bool>
If true images with bad statistics will not be rejected and no shift correction is done (bool; default: True). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is visir.visir_util_detect_shift.no-reject [default = True].
--beampos <str>
Define the positions of the beams. These positions are cut by the window to extract the single beam images. Format: sign:x,y,window;sign:x,y,window;... where sign is "pos" or "neg" depending on whether the beam is positive or negative. The window is optional and defines the size of the cut image around the beam. The default window is the chop throw. E.g.: pos:50,60;neg:50,160; By default autodetection is attempted. (str; default: ´NONE´). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is visir.visir_util_detect_shift.beampos [default = NONE].
--eccmax <float>
The maximum eccentricity allowed in the combination of the three (in parallel nod/chopping) or four (in perpendicular nod/chopping) beams. In parallel mode, three perfectly aligned points spaced with the chopnod throw will have eccentricity 0, while in perpedicular mode a square with the chopnod throw as the side length will have eccentricity 0 (float; default: 3.0). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is visir.visir_util_detect_shift.eccmax [default = 3.0].

--error-source <str>
