NAME

       fors_extract_slits - Spatial rectification of spectral image

SYNOPSIS

       esorex fors_extract_slits [OPTIONS] FILE.sof

DESCRIPTION

       This  recipe  is  used  to extract MOS/MXU slit spectra, following their curvature, and to
       remap them into a spatially rectified image.

       Please refer to the FORS Pipeline UserĀ“s Manual for details about  the  spectra  remapping
       technique.  Note  however  that  the  interpolation  is done exclusively along the spatial
       direction, and therefore the output rectified image will have the same x size of the input
       spectral image.

       In the table below the MXU acronym can be alternatively read as MOS.

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_extract_slits.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_extract_slits.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_extract_slits.endwavelength
              [default = 0.0].

       --flux <bool>
              Apply flux conservation (bool; default: True). The full name of this option for the
              EsoRex configuration file is fors.fors_extract_slits.flux [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.
