SYNOPSIS

esorex kmo_std_star [OPTIONS] FILE.sof

DESCRIPTION

This recipe creates a telluric calibration frame and a PSF frame. It must be called after the kmo_illumination-recipe.

Since there won’t be enough standard stars to observe for all IFUs in one ex- posure, one has to do several exposures in a way that there is at least one standard star and one sky exposure in each IFU. A internal data organiser will analyse the provided exposures and select the appropriate frames as follows: 1. For each IFU the first standard star in the list of provided exposures is

   taken. All subsequent standard star exposures for this IFU will be ignored

2. A corresponding sky exposure will be chosen which will be as close in time

   to the standard star exposure as possible.

3. For any IFUs not containing a standard star and a sky exposure an empty

   frame will be returned.

NOISE_SPEC contains in any case the shot noise [sqrt(counts*gain)/gain]. If the exposures have been taken with template KMOS_spec_cal_stdstarscipatt, then an additional noise component is added in: All existing sky exposures for an IFU are subtracted pairwise, spectra are extracted and the std deviation is calculated.

BASIC PARAMETERS

--startype If this parameter is specified, the stored star types of the observed obejcts in the FITS headers are overridden. This value applies to all objects exa- mined in the input frames. Examples would be “A3I”, “G3IV” or “K0I”. The first letter defines the star type, the second letter the spectral class and the last letters the luminosity class.

--magnitude If this parameter is specified, the stored magnitudes in the FITS headers are overridden. For HK two magnitudes for each H and K have to be specified. All other gratings just use a single magnitude. If two values are provided, they have to be separated with a comma.

--fmethod 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”.

--imethod The interpolation method used for reconstruction. As default \'CS\' is selected.

Note that no error spectra will be generated for this interpolation method.

Select a nearest neighbour method otherwise

--range The spectral range [um] to combine when collapsing the reconstructed cubes.

--save_cubes Set to TRUE if the intermediate reconstructed cubes (eventually divided by illumination correction) should be saved as well. Default is FALSE.

--no_noise Applies only for data taken with template KMOS_spec_cal_stdstarscipatt: Skip lengthy calculation of noise-spectra on all sky exposures (no NOISE_SPEC will be produced).

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\'

--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

--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.
