Parameters

This section documents the parameters recognized by this task (if any).

All parameters are optional.
ParameterMand Type Default Constraints
inpdirectorynostringnone 
Directory path-name of the input files directory - defaults to the current directory.
 
outdirectorynostringnone 
Directory path-name of the output files directory - defaults to inpdirectory
 
boxscalenoint2boxscale$\geq1$
Sliding box size for detection by omdetect
 
contrastnoreal0.001contrast$\geq0$
Contrast parameter for the source detection algorithm (it is O.K. if $flux \geq confused source / total flux $
 
maxscalenoint1maxscale$\geq1$
Maximum power of 2 to search to by omdetect
 
nsigmanoreal6nsigma$\geq1$
Number of $\sigma$ for source detection by omdetect
 
smoothsizenoreal64$1 \geq$smoothsize$\geq 264$
Smooth size (in pixels) used for smoothing image and background by omdetect
 
srcradiusnoreal$-10$$-12 \geq$srcradius$\geq12$
Radius of the source extraction circle. If it is negative, it is expressed in pixels, and its value will be fixed during the extraction of counts. If it is positive, it is expressed in FWHMs, and its value could be reduced by omregion if there is any contaminating source near by the target.
 
bkginnernoreal1.2bkginner$\geq1$
Inner radius of the background annulus in terms of source radius (srcradius)
 
bkgouternoreal1.8bkgouter$\geq1$
Outer radius of the background annulus in terms of source radius (srcradius)
 
timebinsizenoreal10timebinsize$\geq0.5$
Size of the time bins (in seconds) for the time series files
