SYNOPSIS

esorex vmbias [OPTIONS] FILE.sof

DESCRIPTION

This recipe is used to create a master bias frame from a set of raw bias frames.

Input files:

  DO category:  Type:       Explanation:     Required:
  BIAS          Raw         Bias exposure       Y
  CCD_TABLE     Calib       Bad pixel table     .

Output files:

  DO category:  Data type:  Explanation:
  MASTER_BIAS   FITS image  Master bias

A CCD table must be specified only if a bad pixel cleaning is requested.

For more details, please refer to the VIMOS Pipeline User\'s Guide.

OPTIONS

--AllowSingleFrames <bool>

Frame combination method is ignored. (bool; default: True). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is vimos.Parameters.stacking.singleframes [default = True].

--StackMethod <str>

Frame combination method (str; default: \'Median\'). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is vimos.Parameters.stacking.method [default = Median].

--KSigmaLow <float>

Low threshold for K-sigma clipping method (float; default: 5.0). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is vimos.Parameters.stacking.ksigma.low [default = 5.0].

--KSigmaHigh <float>

High threshold for K-sigma clipping method (float; default: 5.0). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is vimos.Parameters.stacking.ksigma.high [default = 5.0].

--MinRejection <long>

Number of lowest rejected values for rejection method (long; default: 1). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is vimos.Parameters.stacking.minmax.minimum [default = 1].

--MaxRejection <long>

Number of highest rejected values for rejection method (long; default: 1). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is vimos.Parameters.stacking.minmax.maximum [default = 1].

--RemoveOverscan <bool>

Remove overscan regions from master bias (bool; default: True). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is vimos.Parameters.bias.overscan.remove [default = True].

--CleanBadPixel <bool>

Bad pixel correction on master bias (bool; default: False). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is vimos.Parameters.bias.badpixel.clean [default = False].

--CleanCosmic <bool>

Cosmic ray removal from each raw bias (bool; default: False). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is vimos.Parameters.bias.cosmics.clean [default = False].

--ComputeQC <bool>

Compute QC1 parameters (bool; default: True). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is vimos.Parameters.bias.quality.enable [default = True].

Note that it is possible to create a configuration file containing these options, along with suitable default values. Please refer to the details provided by the 'esorex --help' command.
