OPTIONS

--stack_method <str>
Method used to build master frame (str; default: 'median'). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is uves_cal_mkmaster.stack_method [default = median].
--klow <float>
Kappa used to clip low level values, when method is set to 'mean' (float; default: 5.0). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is uves_cal_mkmaster.klow [default = 5.0].
--khigh <float>
Kappa used to clip high level values, when method is set to 'mean' (float; default: 5.0). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is uves_cal_mkmaster.khigh [default = 5.0].
--niter <long>
Number of kappa sigma iterations, when method is set to 'mean' (long; default: 5). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is uves_cal_mkmaster.niter [default = 5].
--debug <bool>
Whether or not to save intermediate results to local directory (bool; default: False). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is uves.debug [default = False].
--plotter <str>
Any plots produced by the recipe are redirected to the command specified by this parameter. The plotting command must contain the substring 'gnuplot' and must be able to parse gnuplot syntax on its standard input. Valid examples of such a command may include 'gnuplot -persist' and 'cat > mygnuplot$$.gp'. A finer control of the plotting options can be obtained by writing an executable script, e.g. my_gnuplot.pl, that executes gnuplot after setting the desired gnuplot options (e.g. set terminal pslatex color). To turn off plotting, set this parameter to 'no' (str; default: 'no'). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is uves.plotter [default = no].
--process_chip <str>
For RED arm data process the redl, redu, or both chip(s) (str; default: 'both'). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is uves.process_chip [default = both].

A finer control of the plotting options can be obtained by writing an executable script, e.g. my_gnuplot.pl, that executes gnuplot after setting the desired gnuplot options (e.g. set terminal pslatex color).

--clean_traps <bool>

The positions of bad pixels are hard-coded (as function of UVES chip). (bool; default: False). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is uves_cal_mkmaster.clean_traps [default = False].
--norm_method <str>
Method used to build master frame (str; default: 'explevel'). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is uves_cal_mkmaster.norm_method [default = explevel].
--qc_dark.reg.num_x <long>
Number of regions along the X axis (where mean/med/rms are computed). (long; default: 4). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is uves_cal_mkmaster.qc_dark.reg.num_x [default = 4].
--qc_dark.reg.num_y <long>
Number of regions along the Y axis(where mean/med/rms are computed). (long; default: 4). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is uves_cal_mkmaster.qc_dark.reg.num_y [default = 4].

--backsub.mmethod <str>
Background measuring method. If equal to 'median' the background is sampled using the median of a subwindow. If 'minimum', the subwindow minimum value is used. If 'no', no background subtraction is done. (str; default: 'median'). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is uves_cal_mkmaster.backsub.mmethod [default = median].

--backsub.sdegree <long>
Degree of interpolating splines. Currently only degree = 1 is supported (long; default: 1). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is uves_cal_mkmaster.backsub.sdegree [default = 1].
--backsub.smoothx <float>
If spline interpolation is used to measure the background, the x-radius of the post-smoothing window is (smoothx * image_width). Here, 'image_width' is the image width after binning. If negative, the default values are used: (25.0/4096) for blue flat-field frames, (50.0/4096) for red flat-field frames, (300.0/4096) for blue science frames and (300.0/4096) for red science frames. (float; default: -1.0). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is uves_cal_mkmaster.backsub.smoothx [default = -1.0].
--backsub.smoothy <float>
If spline interpolation is used to measure the background, the y-radius of the post-smoothing window is (smoothy * image_height). Here, 'image_height' is the image height after binning. If negative, the default values are used: (100.0/2048) for blue flat-field frames, (300.0/2048) for red flat-field frames, (200.0/2048) for blue science frames and (500.0/2048) for red science frames. (float; default: -1.0). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is uves_cal_mkmaster.backsub.smoothy [default = -1.0].

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.
