SYNOPSIS

esorex fors_dark [OPTIONS] FILE.sof

DESCRIPTION

This recipe is used to combine input raw DARK frames into a master dark frame by subtracing the master bias and using the given stacking method.

The overscan regions, if present, are removed from the result.

Input files:

  DO category:               Type:       Explanation:         Required:
  DARK                       Raw         Dark frame              Y
  MASTER_BIAS                FITS image  Master bias             Y

Output files:

  MASTER_DARK                FITS image  Master dark frame

OPTIONS

--stack_method <str>

Frames combination method (str; default: \'median\'). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is fors.fors_dark.stack_method [default = median].

--minrejection <long>

Number of lowest values to be rejected (long; default: 1). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is fors.fors_dark.minrejection [default = 1].

--maxrejection <long>

Number of highest values to be rejected (long; default: 1). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is fors.fors_dark.maxrejection [default = 1].

--klow <float>

Low threshold in ksigma method (float; default: 3.0). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is fors.fors_dark.klow [default = 3.0].

--khigh <float>

High threshold in ksigma method (float; default: 3.0). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is fors.fors_dark.khigh [default = 3.0].

--kiter <long>

Max number of iterations in ksigma method (long; default: 999). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is fors.fors_dark.kiter [default = 999].

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.
