naco_util_img_std_cat - Standard star catalog creation
esorex naco_util_img_std_cat [OPTIONS] FILE.sof
naco_util_img_std_cat -- Standard star catalog creation. Convert ASCII-file(s) to a FITS standard star catalog. This recipe generates a FITS standard star catalog for imaging from one or more ASCII-files. Each line in the text file must have 4+8 fields separated by white-space. The first field is the star name, e.g. ´HD108903´ which will be stored in a table column labeled ´STARS´. The next field is the Right Ascension [degrees] which will be stored in a table column labeled ´RA´. The Right Ascension must be non-negative and less than 360. The next field is the Declination [degrees] which will be stored in a table column labeled ´DEC´. The Declination must be within the range -90 to 90. The next field is the spectral type which will be stored in a table column labeled ´SP_TYPE´. The 8 next fields are the magnitudes for the 8 supported image filters. Unknown magnitudes must be indicated by the value 99.0. The filename (without path) of the ASCII file will for each star be added in a table column labeled ´CAT_NAME´. The 8 filter names are hard-coded in the recipe. Lines beginning with a hash (#) are treated as comments. The files listed in the Set Of Frames (sof-file) must be tagged: NACO-ASCII-file IMG_STD_ASCII
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.
The full documentation for the naco pipeline can be downloaded as a PDF file using the following URL: ftp://ftp.eso.org/pub/dfs/pipelines/naco/naco-pipeline-manual-1.1.pdf An overview over the existing ESO pipelines can be found on the web page http://www.eso.org/sci/software/pipelines/. 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 http://packages.python.org/python-cpl/index.html for further information. The other recipes of the naco pipeline are naco_img_checkfocus(7), naco_img_dark(7), naco_img_detlin(7), naco_img_jitter(7), naco_img_lampflat(7), naco_img_slitpos(7), naco_img_strehl(7), naco_img_twflat(7), naco_img_zpoint(7), naco_spc_combine(7), naco_spc_lampflat(7), naco_spc_wavecal(7), naco_util_spc_argon(7), naco_util_spc_model(7)
