Parameters

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

ParameterMand Type Default Constraints
 
Event List Parameters 
imagenostringNULLvalid file name
A name of a fits file that was generated from xmmselect/evselect. No image is used if NULL.
 
levelnostringELLBETAvalid arccuracy level value
Accuracy level: LOW, MEDIUM, EXTENDED, HIGH, ELLBETA
 
binningnoint valid binning value
On-chip-binning factor. Only works for certain camera mode
 
coordtypeyesstringTELvalid coordinate value
Coordinate Type: TEL (theta,phi), DET (detector coords), RAW (chip coords), POS (X,Y - sky coordinates, EQPOS (Ra, Dec), IMPIX (image pixel). The last three (POS,EQPOS,IMPIX) can only be used if an image is supplied.
 
xnoreal  
The X coordinate of the centre of the PSF. If coordtype $=$ TEL, then x is the off-axis angle (theta) which is expected in units of arcseconds. If coordtype $=$ EQPOS then x is the right ascension in units of degrees. For other coordinate systems it should be entered in units of pixels.
 
ynoreal  
The Y coordinate of the centre of the PSF. If coordtype $=$ TEL, then y is the azimuthal angle (phi) which is expected in units of radians. If coordtype $=$ EQPOS then y is the declination in units of degrees. For other coordinate systems it should be entered in units of pixels.
 
ccdnrnoint valid CCD number
CCD number. This is mandatory if coordtype=RAW.
 
energynoreal list3000.0 $\left[ 100:150000\right] $
Energy value list. Note that there is a minimum-maximum range
 
weightnoreal list1.0 
Weighting to construct summation PSF from multiple PSFs with different energies.
 
rotatenoreal0.0 $\left( -1^o:360^o\right) $
Rotation angle of the PSF in units of degrees. If rotate is non-zero then the PSF will be rotated by this angle. The rotation is in the same direction as the position angle (PA). If rotate is not set but an image has been given via the image paremeter then the PSF will be rotated by the position angle (PA_PNT) stored in the image file header. If rotate is non-zero then it will override the value in the input image.
 
xsizenoint199 $\left[ 0:1024\right] $
Width of the X-axis output image in pixels.
 
ysizenoint199 $\left[ 0:1024\right] $
Width of the Y-axis output image in pixels.
 
outputnostringpsfimage.fitsvalid file name
File name of the PSF image.
