SYNOPSIS

esorex uves_cal_orderpos [OPTIONS] FILE.sof

DESCRIPTION

The recipe defines the order positions in an echelle image. The orders are initially detected by means of a Hough transformation, the orders are then traced, and the positions are finally fitted with a global polynomial.

Expected input frames are narrow flat fields, ORDER_FLAT_xxx, or standard stars, STANDARD_xxx, where xxx is \'BLUE\' or \'RED\', and optionally for each chip a DRS setup table (DRS_TABLE_BLUE, DRS_TABLE_REDL, DRS_TABLE_REDU) or guess order table (ORDER_GUESS_TAB_BLUE, ORDER_GUESS_TAB_REDL, ORDER_GUESS_TAB_REDU, or, for backward compatibility, ORDER_TABLE_BLUE, ORDER_TABLE_REDL, ORDER_TABLE_REDU). The recipe processes only the first raw frame found.

Output is one (or two if input is a red frame) order table(s) (UVES: ORDER_TABLE_(BLUE|REDL|REDU); FLAMES: FIB_ORDEF_(REDL|REDU) contaning the columns: X : Position along x Order : Relative order number Y : Order line centroid location Yfit : The fitted order location dY : Uncertainty of Y dYfit_Square : Variance of Yfit Residual : Y - Yfit Residual_Square : Residual^2 OrderRMS : Root mean squared residual of initial

                   one-dimensional linear fit of order

The bivariate fit polynomial itself is stored in table extension no. 2.

The 3rd table extension contains a table that defines the active fibre traces and their positions (for support of FLAMES/UVES)

OPTIONS

--debug <bool>

Whether or not to save intermediate results to local directory (bool; default: False). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is uves.debug [default = False].

--plotter <str>

Any plots produced by the recipe are redirected to the command specified by this parameter. The plotting command must contain the substring \'gnuplot\' and must be able to parse gnuplot syntax on its standard input. Valid examples of such a command may include \'gnuplot -persist\' and \'cat > mygnuplot$$.gp\'. A finer control of the plotting options can be obtained by writing an executable script, e.g. my_gnuplot.pl, that executes gnuplot after setting the desired gnuplot options (e.g. set terminal pslatex color). To turn off plotting, set this parameter to \'no\' (str; default: \'no\'). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is uves.plotter [default = no].

--process_chip <str>

For RED arm data process the redl, redu, or both chip(s) (str; default: \'both\'). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is uves.process_chip [default = both].

--use_guess_tab <long>

If a Guess order table is provided this parameter set how it is used:0: No usage, 1: use it to set lower/upper Y raws where order are searched 2: the order table try to fully match the guess (long; default: 1). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is uves_cal_orderpos.preproc.use_guess_tab [default = 1].

--radx <long>

--rady <long>

Half Y size of median filtering window (long; default: 1). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is uves_cal_orderpos.preproc.rady [default = 1].

--mmethod <str>

Background subtraction method. If equal to \'median\' the background is sampled using the median of a sub-window. If \'minimum\', the minimum sub-window value is used. If \'no\', no background subtraction is done. (str; default: \'median\'). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is uves_cal_orderpos.preproc.mmethod [default = median].

--backsubgrid <long>

Number of grid points (in x- and y-direction) used to estimate the background (mode=poly). (long; default: 50). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is uves_cal_orderpos.preproc.backsubgrid [default = 50].

--backsubradiusy <long>

The height (in pixels) of the background sampling window is (2*radiusy + 1). This parameter is not corrected for binning. (long; default: 2). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is uves_cal_orderpos.preproc.backsubradiusy [default = 2].

--backsubkappa <float>

The value of kappa in the one-sided kappa-sigma clipping used to estimate the background (mode=poly). (float; default: 4.0). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is uves_cal_orderpos.preproc.backsubkappa [default = 4.0].

--backsubdegx <long>

Degree (in x) of polynomial used to estimate the background (mode=poly). (long; default: 2). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is uves_cal_orderpos.preproc.backsubdegx [default = 2].

--backsubdegy <long>

Degree (in y) of polynomial used to estimate the background (mode=poly). (long; default: 2). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is uves_cal_orderpos.preproc.backsubdegy [default = 2].

--samplewidth <long>

Separation of sample traces (used by Hough transform) in input image (long; default: 50). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is uves_cal_orderpos.hough.samplewidth [default = 50].

--minslope <float>

Minimum possible line slope. This should be the \'physical\' slope on the chip, i.e. not taking binning factors into account, which is handled by the recipe (float; default: 0.0). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is uves_cal_orderpos.hough.minslope [default = 0.0].

--maxslope <float>

--sloperes <long>

--pthres <float>

In automatic mode, or if the number of orders to detect is read from a guess table, the detection of new lines stops when the intensity of a candidate line drops to less than \'pthres\' times the intensity of the previous detection. (float; default: 0.2). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is uves_cal_orderpos.hough.pthres [default = 0.2].

--tracestep <long>

--minthresh <float>

--maxgap <float>

If the order line drops below detection threshold, the order tracing algorithm will try to jump a gap of maximum size \'maxgap\' multiplied by the image width (float; default: 0.2). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is uves_cal_orderpos.trace.maxgap [default = 0.2].

--maxrms <float>
