NAME

       vmimflatsky - Create a master sky flat field from set of raw sky flat field frames.

SYNOPSIS

       esorex vmimflatsky [OPTIONS] FILE.sof

DESCRIPTION

       This  recipe  is used to create a master sky flat field from a set of raw sky flat fields.
       The master sky flat field is the dataset used for the flat field correction of  scientific
       data.

       Input files:

         DO category:              Type:       Explanation:         Required:
         IMG_SKY_FLAT              Raw         Sky flat exposure       Y
         MASTER_BIAS               Calib       Master bias             Y
         MASTER_DARK               Calib       Master dark             .

         IMG_MASTER_SCREEN_FLAT    Calib       Master screen flat      .

         CCD_TABLE                 Calib       Bad pixel table         .

       Output files:

         DO category:              Data type:  Explanation:
         IMG_MASTER_SKY_FLAT       FITS image  Master sky flat field

       If  a  master screen flat is specified, the input sky flat exposures are flat-fielded with
       it, and then just used to determine the large scale trends of the instrument response; the
       result  is  then  multiplied  by  the master screen flat. A CCD table must be specified in
       input only if a bad pixel cleaning is requested.

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