NAME

       fors_align_sky_lss - Upgrade wavelength solution using sky lines

SYNOPSIS

       esorex fors_align_sky_lss [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  scientific  frames  are  produced  by   the   recipes   fors_remove_bias   and
       fors_flatfield.  An  input  catalog  of  sky lines can be specified, or an internal one is
       used.

       This recipe should be applied to LSS or long-slit like data (MOS/MXU with all slits at the
       same  offset). For multi-slit MOS/MXU data use recipe fors_align_sky 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 LSS,  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_lss.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_lss.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_lss.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_lss.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_lss.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.
