       vmifustandard - Extract a standard star spectrum.


       esorex vmifustandard [OPTIONS] FILE.sof


       This  recipe  extracts  IFU  standard  star fiber spectra using the input extraction mask,
       after aligning it to the brightest fiber spectra  detected  on  the  input  exposure.  The
       extracted  spectra  are  then  resampled at a constant wavelength step, after aligning the
       input wavelength calibration to the positions of  a  set  of  identified  sky  lines.  The
       extracted  spectra are finally corrected for the relative differences in transmission from
       fiber to fiber, and summed together.

       Output files:

         DO category:            Data type:  Explanation:
         IFU_STANDARD_REDUCED    FITS image  Reduced standard star spectra
         IFU_FOV                 FITS image  Reconstructed field-of-view image
         IFU_STANDARD_EXTRACTED  FITS table  Total standard star spectrum
         IFU_SCIENCE_SKY         FITS table  Total sky spectrum
         IFU_SPECPHOT_TABLE      FITS table  Efficiency and response curves

       The extraction mask, the wavelength calibration, and the relative transmission table,  are
       those  generated  by  the  recipe  vmifucalib. A CCD table must be specified only if a bad
       pixel cleaning is requested.

       The spectra extracted from the fibers on the standard star are added and compared  to  the
       catalog  fluxes of the same star, to obtain the efficiency curve and the response curve to
       use for flux calibration.

       The procedure is the same as  the  one  applied  in  the  case  of  MOS  data,  by  recipe


       --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  =

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

       --UseSkylines <bool>
              Use  sky lines to refine the wavelength calibration (bool; default: True). The full
              name of this option for the EsoRex configuration file is
              [default = True].

       --ResponseOrder <int>
              Order  of  the  polynomial  used  to  smooth  the instrument response curve.  (int;
              default: 5). The full name of this option for  the  EsoRex  configuration  file  is
              vimos.Parameters.response.order [default = 5].

       --ReduceAnyFrame <bool>
              Reduce  any  frame.  (bool;  default:  False). The full name of this option for the
              EsoRex configuration file is vimos.Parameters.reduceall [default = False].

       --ComputeQC <bool>
              Compute QC1 parameters (bool; default: True). The full name of this option for  the
              EsoRex configuration file is vimos.Parameters.quality.enable [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'
