NAME

       fors_align_sky - Upgrade wavelength solution using sky lines

SYNOPSIS

       esorex fors_align_sky [OPTIONS] FILE.sof

DESCRIPTION

       This  recipe  is used to align the wavelength solution based on the arc lamp exposure on a
       set of sky lines observed on a scientific exposure.

       The input rectified frames are produced by the recipe fors_extract_slits.

       An input catalog of sky lines can be specified, otherwise an internal one is used.

       This recipe should be applied to multi-slit MOS/MXU data: for LSS or long-slit  like  data
       (MOS/MXU  with all slits at the same offset) use recipe fors_align_sky_lss instead. Please
       refer to the FORS Pipeline User´s Manual for more details.

       In the table below the MXU acronym can be alternatively read as MOS, and SCI as STD.

OPTIONS

       --dispersion <float>
              Expected spectral dispersion (Angstrom/pixel) (float; default: 0.0). The full  name
              of  this option for the EsoRex configuration file is fors.fors_align_sky.dispersion
              [default = 0.0].

       --startwavelength <float>
              Start wavelength in spectral extraction (float; default: 0.0).  The  full  name  of
              this      option      for      the      EsoRex      configuration      file      is
              fors.fors_align_sky.startwavelength [default = 0.0].

       --endwavelength <float>
              End wavelength in spectral extraction (float; default: 0.0). The full name of  this
              option  for  the  EsoRex  configuration  file  is fors.fors_align_sky.endwavelength
              [default = 0.0].

       --skyalign <int>
              Polynomial order for sky lines alignment (int; default: 0). The full name  of  this
              option for the EsoRex configuration file is fors.fors_align_sky.skyalign [default =
              0].

       --wcolumn <str>
              Name of sky line catalog table column with wavelengths (str; default: ´WLEN´).  The
              full    name    of   this   option   for   the   EsoRex   configuration   file   is
              fors.fors_align_sky.wcolumn [default = WLEN].

       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.
