NAME

       fors_sumflux - Integrate flux from all or part of the input frame

SYNOPSIS

       esorex fors_sumflux [OPTIONS] FILE.sof

DESCRIPTION

       This  recipe  is  used  to monitor any lamp flux on the CCD. The input raw image should be
       either a FLUX_ARC_LSS or a FLUX_FLAT_LSS frame. After the background subtraction the total
       signal  is  integrated  and  divided  by  the exposure time and by the total number of CCD
       original pixels (keeping into account a possible rebinned readout). In the case  of  FORS2
       frames  the  background is the median level evaluated from the available overscan regions.
       In the case of FORS1 data, where overscan regions are missing, the background is evaluated
       as  the  median level of the first 200 CCD columns for flat field data, while for arc lamp
       data a background map evaluated from the regions without spectral lines  is  computed  and
       subtracted.  The background subtracted frame is written to output in all cases, and the QC
       parameters QC LAMP FLUX and QC LAMP FLUXERR are computed.

OPTIONS

       --xlow <int>
              X coordinate of lower left corner of integration region (pixel) (int; default:  0).
              The   full   name   of   this   option   for   the  EsoRex  configuration  file  is
              fors.fors_sumflux.xlow [default = 0].

       --ylow <int>
              Y coordinate of lower left corner of integration region (pixel) (int; default:  0).
              The   full   name   of   this   option   for   the  EsoRex  configuration  file  is
              fors.fors_sumflux.ylow [default = 0].

       --xhigh <int>
              X coordinate of upper right corner of integration region (pixel)  (0  =  CCD  size)
              (int;  default:  0). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file
              is fors.fors_sumflux.xhigh [default = 0].

       --yhigh <int>
              Y coordinate of upper right corner of integration region (pixel)  (0  =  CCD  size)
              (int;  default:  0). The full name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file
              is fors.fors_sumflux.yhigh [default = 0].

       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.
