OPTIONS

--sex_exe <str>

SExtractor executable (str; default: \'/usr/bin/sex\'). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is fors.fors_zeropoint.sex_exe [default = /usr/bin/sex].

--sex_config <str>

SExtractor configuration file (str; default: \'/usr/share/cpl- plugins/fors-5.0.0/config/fors.sex\'). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is fors.fors_zeropoint.sex_config [default = /usr/share/cpl-plugins/fors-5.0.0/config/fors.sex].

--sex_mag <str>

SExtractor magnitude (str; default: \'MAG_APER\'). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is fors.fors_zeropoint.sex_mag [default = MAG_APER].

--sex_magerr <str>

SExtractor magnitude error (str; default: \'MAGERR_APER\'). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is fors.fors_zeropoint.sex_magerr [default = MAGERR_APER].

--sex_radius <long>

Background error map median filter radius (unbinned pixels) (long; default: 64). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is fors.fors_zeropoint.sex_radius [default = 64].

--maxoffset <float>

Maximum acceptable offset between the image and catalogue WCS (pixels) (float; default: 150.0). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is fors.fors_zeropoint.maxoffset [default = 150.0].

--magcutE <float>

Zeropoint absolute cutoff (magnitude) (float; default: 1.0). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is fors.fors_zeropoint.magcutE [default = 1.0].

--magcutk <float>

Zeropoint kappa rejection parameter (float; default: 5.0). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is fors.fors_zeropoint.magcutk [default = 5.0].

--magsyserr <float>

Systematic error in magnitude (float; default: 0.01). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is fors.fors_zeropoint.magsyserr [default = 0.01].

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.
