vmbias(7) Create a master bias from set of raw bias frames.

SYNOPSIS

esorex vmbias [OPTIONS] FILE.sof

DESCRIPTION

This recipe is used to create a master bias frame from a set of raw bias frames.

Input files:


  DO category:  Type:       Explanation:     Required:
  BIAS          Raw         Bias exposure       Y
  CCD_TABLE     Calib       Bad pixel table     .

Output files:


  DO category:  Data type:  Explanation:
  MASTER_BIAS   FITS image  Master bias

A CCD table must be specified only if a bad pixel cleaning is requested.

For more details, please refer to the VIMOS Pipeline User's Guide.

OPTIONS

--AllowSingleFrames <bool>
Frame combination method is ignored. (bool; default: True). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is vimos.Parameters.stacking.singleframes [default = True].
--StackMethod <str>
Frame combination method (str; default: 'Median'). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is vimos.Parameters.stacking.method [default = Median].
--KSigmaLow <float>
Low threshold for K-sigma clipping method (float; default: 5.0). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is vimos.Parameters.stacking.ksigma.low [default = 5.0].
--KSigmaHigh <float>
High threshold for K-sigma clipping method (float; default: 5.0). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is vimos.Parameters.stacking.ksigma.high [default = 5.0].
--MinRejection <long>
Number of lowest rejected values for rejection method (long; default: 1). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is vimos.Parameters.stacking.minmax.minimum [default = 1].
--MaxRejection <long>
Number of highest rejected values for rejection method (long; default: 1). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is vimos.Parameters.stacking.minmax.maximum [default = 1].
--RemoveOverscan <bool>
Remove overscan regions from master bias (bool; default: True). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is vimos.Parameters.bias.overscan.remove [default = True].
--CleanBadPixel <bool>
Bad pixel correction on master bias (bool; default: False). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is vimos.Parameters.bias.badpixel.clean [default = False].
--CleanCosmic <bool>
Cosmic ray removal from each raw bias (bool; default: False). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is vimos.Parameters.bias.cosmics.clean [default = False].
--ComputeQC <bool>
Compute QC1 parameters (bool; default: True). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is vimos.Parameters.bias.quality.enable [default = True].

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.
