NAME

       vmdark - Create a master dark from set of raw dark frames.

SYNOPSIS

       esorex vmdark [OPTIONS] FILE.sof

DESCRIPTION

       This recipe is used to create a master dark frame from a set of raw dark frames.

       Input files:

         DO category:  Type:       Explanation:     Required:
         DARK          Raw         Dark exposure       Y
         MASTER_BIAS   Calib       Master bias         Y
         CCD_TABLE     Calib       Bad pixel table     .

       Output files:

         DO category:  Data type:  Explanation:
         MASTER_DARK   FITS image  Master dark

       A CCD table must be specified only if a bad pixel cleaning is requested.

       For more details, please refer to the VIMOS Pipeline User´s Guide.

OPTIONS

       --AllowSingleFrames <bool>
              Frame  combination  method is ignored. (bool; default: True). The full name of this
              option for the EsoRex configuration file is  vimos.Parameters.stacking.singleframes
              [default = True].

              Median].

       --KSigmaLow <float>
              Low  threshold for K-sigma clipping method. (float; default: 5.0). The full name of

              vimos.Parameters.stacking.ksigma.low [default = 5.0].

       --KSigmaHigh <float>
              High threshold for K-sigma clipping method. (float; default: 5.0). The full name of
              this      option      for      the      EsoRex      configuration      file      is
              vimos.Parameters.stacking.ksigma.high [default = 5.0].

       --MinRejection <int>
              Number  of lowest rejected values for rejection method. (int; default: 1). The full
              name    of    this    option    for    the    EsoRex    configuration    file    is
              vimos.Parameters.stacking.minmax.minimum [default = 1].

       --MaxRejection <int>
              Number of highest rejected values for rejection method. (int; default: 1). The full
              name    of    this    option    for    the    EsoRex    configuration    file    is
              vimos.Parameters.stacking.minmax.maximum [default = 1].

       --BiasMethod <str>
              Bias  removal  method.  (str; default: ´Zmaster´). The full name of this option for
              the EsoRex configuration file is vimos.Parameters.bias.removing.method  [default  =
              Zmaster].

       --CleanBadPixel <bool>
              Bad  pixel correction on master dark. (bool; default: False). The full name of this
              option  for  the  EsoRex  configuration  file  is   vimos.Parameters.badpixel.clean
              [default = False].

       --CleanCosmic <bool>
              Cosmic  ray events cleaning from raw darks. (bool; default: True). The full name of
              this option for the EsoRex  configuration  file  is  vimos.Parameters.cosmics.clean
              [default = True].

       --CosmicThreshold <float>
              Threshold  to identify cosmic rays candidates. (float; default: 4.0). The full name
              of     this     option     for     the     EsoRex     configuration     file     is
              vimos.Parameters.cosmics.threshold [default = 4.0].

       --CosmicRatio <float>
              Min  ratio  between peak and nearby pixels for a cosmic ray. (float; default: 2.0).
              The  full  name  of  this   option   for   the   EsoRex   configuration   file   is

       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.
