kmos_illumination(7) Create a frame to correct spatial non-uniformity of flatfield

SYNOPSIS

esorex kmos_illumination [OPTIONS] FILE.sof

DESCRIPTION

This recipe creates the spatial non-uniformity calibration frame needed for all three detectors. It must be called after the kmo_wave_cal-recipe, which generates the spectral calibration frame needed in this recipe. As input at least a sky, a master dark, a master flat and the spatial and spectral cali- bration frames are required.

The created product, the illumination correction, can be used as input for kmo_std_star and kmo_sci_red.

BASIC PARAMETERS

--imethod The interpolation method used for reconstruction.

--range The spectral ranges to combine when collapsing the reconstructed cubes. e.g.

"x1_start,x1_end;x2_start,x2_end" (microns)

ADVANCED PARAMETERS

--flux Specify if flux conservation should be applied.

--add-all By default the first FLAT_SKY frame is omitted, since in the KMOS_spec_cal_skyflat template this is an acquisition frame to estimate the needed exposure time for the subsequent FLAT_SKY frames. If anyway all frames should be considered, set this parameter to TRUE.

--neighborhoodRange Defines the range to search for neighbors during reconstruction

--b_samples The number of samples in spectral direction for the reconstructed cube.

Ideally this number should be greater than 2048, the detector size.

--b_start --b_end Used to define manually the start and end wavelength for the reconstructed cube. By default the internally defined values are used.

--cmethod Following methods of frame combination are available:
   * 'ksigma' (Default)
   An iterative sigma clipping. For each position all pixels in the spectrum
   are examined. If they deviate significantly, they will be rejected
   according to the conditions:
       val > mean + stdev * cpos_rej
   and
       val < mean - stdev * cneg_rej
   where --cpos_rej, --cneg_rej and --citer are the corresponding
   configuration parameters. In the first iteration median and percentile
   level are used.


   * 'median'
   At each pixel position the median is calculated.


   * 'average'
   At each pixel position the average is calculated.


   * 'sum'
   At each pixel position the sum is calculated.


   * 'min_max'
   The specified nb of minimum and maximum pixel values will be rejected.


   --cmax and --cmin apply to this method.

--cpos_rej --cneg_rej --citer see --cmethod='ksigma'

--cmax --cmin see --cmethod='min_max'

--pix_scale Change the pixel scale [arcsec]. Default of 0.2" results into cubes of 14x14pix, a scale of 0.1" results into cubes of 28x28pix, etc.

--suppress_extension If set to TRUE, the arbitrary filename extensions are supressed. If multiple products with the same category are produced, they will be numbered consecutively starting from 0.
