vmifucombine - Combine partial IFU field-of-views reconstructed by vmifuscience
from different quadrants.
This recipe is used to compose into a single image the reconstructed images of
the IFU field-of-view from different VIMOS quadrants.
Such images are created by the recipes vmifuscience and vmifustandard.
The input images must belong to different quadrants, so that they cannot be more
than 4. The images are simply summed together: in fact, all field-of-view
images are always 80x80 pixels, with only the sector corresponding to one
quadrant having intensities that differ from zero.
For more details, please refer to the VIMOS Pipeline User´s Guide.
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.
