       muse_qi_mask - Create image masks for use with the quick image reconstruction.


       esorex muse_qi_mask [OPTIONS] FILE.sof


       Trace  and  wavelength calibration tables (24 of them each, one per IFU) are used to build
       wavelength maps. If the input data is binned, the wavelength maps are binned in  the  same
       way (averaging of pixels). The wavelength maps are then thresholded to create masks of the
       desired wavelength range. Finally, the mask is "untrimmed", i.e.  empty  regions  for  the
       pre-  and  overscans  are  added  (in  a simple way, assuming quadrants of equal size, and
       padding of 32 pixels on all quadrant edges). Note: this recipe is not  part  of  the  main
       MUSE  pipeline  but  to  be  used in the integration phase to create image masks until the
       system is fully qualified. It therefore does only minimal error checking.


       --nifu <int>
              IFU to handle. If set  to  0,  all  IFUs  are  processed  serially,  which  is  the
              recommendation  for  this recipe, since only then all extensions end up in the same
              output file. (int; default: 0). The  full  name  of  this  option  for  the  EsoRex
              configuration file is muse.muse_qi_mask.nifu [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'


       The  full  documentation  for  the muse pipeline can be downloaded as a PDF file using the
       following URL:


       An  overview  over  the  existing  ESO  pipelines  can  be   found   on   the   web   page

       Basic documentation about the EsoRex program can be found at the esorex (1) man page.

       It  is  possible  to  call  the  pipelines  from python using the python-cpl package.  See for further information.
