vmimcalphot - Determine photometric calibration from a set of observed standard
This recipe is used to determine night zeropoints, atmospheric extinction
coefficients, and colour terms, from a set of star match tables produced by
the recipe vmimstandard. The star match tables may refer to different standard
star fields, but they must all be derived from exposures made with the same
filter and the same quadrant.
DO category: Type: Explanation: Required:
IMG_STAR_MATCH_TABLE Product Lust of standard stars Y
PHOTOMETRIC_TABLE Calib Photometric table Y
DO category: Data type: Explanation:
PHOTOMETRIC_TABLE FITS table Upgraded photometric table
The only product of this recipe is an upgraded PHOTOMETRIC_TABLE, carrying the
newly computed zeropoint, and, if requested, new extinction and colour
For more details, please refer to the VIMOS Pipeline User´s Guide.
- --Extinction <bool>
- Compute also extinction coefficient (bool; default: False).
The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is
vimos.Parameters.extinction [default = False].
- --ColorTerm <bool>
- Compute also color term (bool; default: False). The full
name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is
vimos.Parameters.colorterm [default = False].
- --UseColorTerm <bool>
- Use color term in zeropoint computation (bool; default:
False). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is
vimos.Parameters.usecolorterm [default = False].
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.
