SYNOPSIS

esorex kmo_illumination_flat [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 flatfield frame is required.

Contrary to kmo_illumination it doesn\'t use flat sky frames but rather the flatfield frames from the internal flat lamp. This recipe can be used if no acceptable flat sky frames are available.

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.

ADVANCED PARAMETERS

--flux Specify if flux conservation should be applied.

--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 number 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 numered consecutively starting from 0.
