visir_util_spc_std_cat - Generate a FITS catalog of spectroscopic standard stars

VISIR_UTIL_SPC_STD_CAT(7) visir recipes VISIR_UTIL_SPC_STD_CAT(7)

NAME

visir_util_spc_std_cat - Generate a FITS catalog of spectroscopic standard stars
 

SYNOPSIS

esorex visir_util_spc_std_cat [OPTIONS] FILE.sof
 

DESCRIPTION

This recipe shall be used to generate a FITS catalog of spectroscopic standard stars for the VISIR pipeline.
The sof file shall consist of lines with the name of an ASCII-file named <Star_Name>.txt, e.g. HD133165.txt and the tag SPC_CAT_ASCII.
All input ASCII-files must comprise the same number of lines.
The first line of the ASCII-file must have 6 fields separated by white-space.
The first three fields are the RA (hh mm ss) which will be stored in degrees in a table column labeled ´RA´ - all three are non-negative and hh and mm are integer.
The 3 last fields are the DEC (dd mm ss) which will be stored in degrees in a table column labeled ´DEC´ - all three are non-negative, dd and mm are integer, and dd has either a ´+´ or a ´-´ prepended (including -00).
The remaining lines must all consist of two fields separated by white-space.
The first field is the wavelength (in microns) and the second the (positive) model flux in W/m2/m. The wavelengths must be identical in all the input files.

OPTIONS

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.
