visir_util_undistort - Correct the distortion in spectral data

VISIR_UTIL_UNDISTORT(7) visir recipes VISIR_UTIL_UNDISTORT(7)

NAME

visir_util_undistort - Correct the distortion in spectral data
 

SYNOPSIS

esorex visir_util_undistort [OPTIONS] FILE.sof
 

DESCRIPTION

The files listed in the Set Of Frames (sof-file) must be tagged: VISIR-chopnod-corrected-file.fits CHOPNOD_CORRECTED Optionally, a bad pixel map may be provided: VISIR-bpm-file.fits STATIC_MASK
 
The product(s) will have a FITS card ´HIERARCH ESO PRO CATG´ with a value of: UNDISTORTED The recipe default values for the transformation are only valid for spectral data taken in Low resolution mode
 

OPTIONS

--bkgcorrect <bool>
Cho-nod correct the data (bool; default: True). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is visir.visir_util_undistort.bkgcorrect [default = True].
--xl <long>
Coordinate in spatial direction. Together with yl it defines the lower point of a rectangle containing only skylines for the wavelength shift detection (long; default: 117). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is visir.visir_util_undistort.xl [default = 117].
--yl <long>
Coordinate in wavelength direction. See xl (long; default: 110). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is visir.visir_util_undistort.yl [default = 110].
--xh <long>
Coordinate in spatial direction. Together with yl it defines the higher point of a rectangle containing only skylines for the wavelength shift detection (long; default: 125). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is visir.visir_util_undistort.xh [default = 125].
--yh <long>
Coordinate in wavelength direction. See xh (long; default: 150). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is visir.visir_util_undistort.yh [default = 150].
--slit_skew <float>
Distortion correction: Skew of slit (degrees) (clockwise) (float; default: 0.52). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is visir.visir_util_undistort.phi [default = 0.52].
--spectrum_skew <float>
Distortion correction: LMR Skew of spectrum (degrees) (counter- clockwise). Not used in High Resolution (float; default: 1.73). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is visir.visir_util_undistort.ksi [default = 1.73].
--vert_arc <float>
Distortion correction: LR Detector vertical curvature (pixel). Reduced by a factor 4 in MR. Not used in HR A-side. Increased by a factor 115/52 in HR B-side (float; default: -0.8). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is visir.visir_util_undistort.eps [default = -0.8].
--hori_arc <float>
Distortion correction: LMR Detector horizontal curvature (pixel). Increased by a factor 1.5 in HR A-side. Reduced by a factor 2 in HR B-side (float; default: 0.0). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is visir.visir_util_undistort.delta [default = 0.0].
 
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.
