psfgen (psfgen-1.7) [xmmsas_20211130_0941-20.0.0]


Example 1: an on-axis PSF

psfgen instrument=EMOS2 energy=1000 coordtype=TEL x=0 y=0 level=MEDIUM output=psf.fits

This command produces an image called psf.fits containing the MEDIUM-level PSF of the MOS2 camera, at the optical axis (off-axis angle=0, azimuthal-angle=0) for photons of 1000 eV. The image is binned into 1.1 x 1.1 arcsecond square pixels (for MEIDUM mode) and has a default size of 199 x 199 pixels.
