NAME

       fors_img_screen_flat - Compute master screen flat frame

SYNOPSIS

       esorex fors_img_screen_flat [OPTIONS] FILE.sof

DESCRIPTION

       After  bias  subtraction,  the  input flat field frames are combined using the given stack
       method. The  combined  frame  is  finally  normalised  dividing  it  by  its  large  scale
       illumination  trend.  The large scale trend is obtained by applying a median filter with a
       large kernel. To avoid boundary  effects,  the  median  filter  is  applied  only  to  the
       specified region.

       The overscan regions, if present, are removed from the result.

       Input files:

         DO category:               Type:       Explanation:         Required:
         SCREEN_FLAT_IMG            Raw         Screen flat field    Y
         MASTER_BIAS                Raw         Master bias          Y

       Output files:

OPTIONS

       --stack_method <str>
              Frames  combination  method (str; default: ┬┤average┬┤). The full name of this option
              for  the  EsoRex  configuration  file   is   fors.fors_img_screen_flat.stack_method
              [default = average].

       --minrejection <long>
              Number  of  lowest  values to be rejected (long; default: 1). The full name of this
              option for the EsoRex configuration file is  fors.fors_img_screen_flat.minrejection
              [default = 1].

       --maxrejection <long>
              Number  of  highest values to be rejected (long; default: 1). The full name of this
              option for the EsoRex configuration file is  fors.fors_img_screen_flat.maxrejection
              [default = 1].

       --klow <float>
              Low  threshold in ksigma method (float; default: 3.0). The full name of this option
              for the EsoRex configuration  file  is  fors.fors_img_screen_flat.klow  [default  =
              3.0].

       --khigh <float>
              High threshold in ksigma method (float; default: 3.0). The full name of this option
              for the EsoRex configuration file  is  fors.fors_img_screen_flat.khigh  [default  =
              3.0].

       --kiter <long>
              Max  number  of  iterations in ksigma method (long; default: 999). The full name of
              this option for the EsoRex configuration  file  is  fors.fors_img_screen_flat.kiter
              [default = 999].

       --xradius <long>
              Median filter x radius (unbinned pixels) (long; default: 50). The full name of this
              option for  the  EsoRex  configuration  file  is  fors.fors_img_screen_flat.xradius
              [default = 50].

       --yradius <long>
              Median filter y radius (unbinned pixels) (long; default: 50). The full name of this
              option for  the  EsoRex  configuration  file  is  fors.fors_img_screen_flat.yradius
              [default = 50].

       --degree <long>
              Degree  of fitting polynomial (long; default: -1). The full name of this option for
              the EsoRex configuration file is fors.fors_img_screen_flat.degree [default = -1].

       --sampling <long>
              Sampling interval for fitting (long; default: 100). The full name  of  this  option
              for  the EsoRex configuration file is fors.fors_img_screen_flat.sampling [default =
              100].

       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.
