NAME

       fors_wave_calib - Derive dispersion relation from rectified arc lamp frame

SYNOPSIS

       esorex fors_wave_calib [OPTIONS] FILE.sof

DESCRIPTION

       This  recipe  is  used  to  wavelength  calibrate  MOS/MXU  slit  spectra contained in the
       rectified arc lamp exposure produced with recipe fors_extract_slits.

       A pattern-matching algorithm is applied as in recipe fors_detect_spectra.

       The input spatial map is used in the production of the wavelength map.

       Use recipe fors_wave_calib_lss for LSS data, or for MOS/MXU data where all slits have  the
       same  offset.  For  more  details on this data reduction strategy please refer to the FORS
       Pipeline User´s Manual.

       Note that specifying an input GRISM_TABLE  will  set  some  of  the  recipe  configuration
       parameters to default values valid for a particular grism.

       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_wave_calib.dispersion
              [default = 0.0].

       --peakdetection <float>
              Initial peak detection threshold (ADU) (float; default: 0.0). The full name of this
              option for the  EsoRex  configuration  file  is  fors.fors_wave_calib.peakdetection
              [default = 0.0].

       --wdegree <int>
              Degree  of  wavelength  calibration  polynomial (int; default: 0). The full name of
              this option for  the  EsoRex  configuration  file  is  fors.fors_wave_calib.wdegree
              [default = 0].

       --wradius <int>
              Search  radius if iterating pattern-matching with first-guess method (int; default:
              4).  The  full  name  of  this  option  for  the  EsoRex  configuration   file   is
              fors.fors_wave_calib.wradius [default = 4].

       --wreject <float>
              Rejection  threshold  in dispersion relation fit (pixel) (float; default: 0.7). The
              full   name   of   this   option   for   the   EsoRex   configuration    file    is
              fors.fors_wave_calib.wreject [default = 0.7].

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

       --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_wave_calib.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_wave_calib.endwavelength
              [default = 0.0].

       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.
