SYNOPSIS

esorex sinfo_rec_mflat [OPTIONS] FILE.sof

DESCRIPTION

This recipe reduce normal raw flat fields.

The input files are a set of flat fields with tag FLAT_LAMP optionally one may have in input also several bad pixel maps to be coadded.

The main products are a master flat field (PRO.CATG=MASTER_FLAT_LAMP) image a bad pixel map (PRO.CATG=BP_MAP_NO), a master bad pixel map (PRO.CATG=MASTER_BP_MAP) resulting by the coaddition of all bad pixel maps.
