SYNOPSIS

esorex kmo_multi_reconstruct [OPTIONS] FILE.sof

DESCRIPTION

Ideally at least two data frames have to be provided since we need for each IFU pointing to an object as well a sky frame for the same IFU.

If an OH spectrum is given in the SOF file the lambda axis will be corrected using the OH lines as reference.

All IFUs with the same object name will be reconstructed and combined in one step Telluric correction is only supported if the objects have been observed with the same IFU on all exposures (dithering).

The number of created files depends on the number of objects of different name.

If the user just wants to combine a certain object, the parameters --name or --ifus can be used.

Exposures taken with the templates KMOS_spec_obs_mapping8 and KMOS_spec_obs_mapping24 can\'t be processed with this recipe! Use kmo_sci_red instead.

BASIC PARAMETERS

--imethod The interpolation method used for reconstruction.

--name --ifus Since an object can be present only once per exposure and since it can be located in different IFUs for the existing exposures, there are two modes to identify the objects:

   * Combine by object names (default)
   In this case the object name must be provided via the --name parameter. The
   object name will be searched for in all primary headers of all provided
   frames in the keyword ESO OCS ARMx NAME.
   * Combine by index (advanced)
   In this case the --ifus parameter must be provided. The parameter must have
   the same number of entries as frames are provided, e.g. "3;1;24" for 3
   exposures. The index doesn\'t reference the extension in the frame but the
   real index of the IFU as defined in the EXTNAME keyword.
   (e.g. \'IFU.3.DATA\')

ADVANCED PARAMETERS

--flux Specify if flux conservation should be applied.

--background Specify if background removal should be applied.

--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.

--obj_sky_table The automatic obj-sky-associations can be modified by indicating a file with the desired associations. Therefore the file written to disk by default (without setting this option) can be edited manually. The formatting must absolutely be retained, just the type codes (\'O\' and\'S\') and the associated frame indices should be altered

  Advanced reconstruction parameters
  ----------------------------------

--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.

--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.

--no_subtract If set to TRUE, the found objects and references won\'t be sky subtracted. Additionally all IFUs will be reconstructed, even the ones containing skies.

--xcal_interpolation If true interpolate the pixel position in the slitlet (xcal) using the two closest rotator angles in the calibration file. Otherwise take the values of the closest rotator angle

  Advanced combining parameters
  ----------------------------------

--method There are following sources to get the shift parameters from:

   * \'header\' (default)
   The shifts are calculated according to the WCS information stored in the
   header of every IFU. The output frame will get larger, except the object is
   at the exact same position for all exposures. The size of the exposures can
   differ, but the orientation must be the same for all exposures.
   * \'none\'
   The cubes are directly recombined, not shifting at all. The output frame
   will have the same dimensions as the input cubes.
   If the size differs a warning will be emitted and the cubes will be aligned
   to the lower left corner. If the orientation differs a warning will be
   emitted, but the cubes are combined anyway.
   * \'center\'
   The shifts are calculated using a centering algorithm. The cube will be
   collapsed and a 2D profile will be fitted to it to identify the centre.
   With the parameter --fmethod the function to fit can be provided. The size
   of the exposures can differ, but the orientation must be the same for all
   exposures.
   * \'user\'
   Read the shifts from a user specified file. The path of the file must be
   provided using the --filename parameter. For every exposure (except the
   first one) two shift values are expected per line, they have to be separa-
   ted with simple spaces. The values indicate pixel shifts and are referenced
   to the first frame. The 1st value is the shift in x-direction to the left,
   the 2nd the shift in y-direction upwards. The size of the exposures can
   differ, but the orientation must be the same for all exposures.

--fmethod see --method=\'center\' The type of function that should be fitted spatially to the collapsed image.

This fit is used to create a mask to extract the spectrum of the object. Valid values are \'gauss\' and \'moffat\'.

--filename see --method=\'user\'

--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\'
