psfgen (psfgen-1.7.1) [xmmsas_20230412_1735-21.0.0]

Example 2: an off-axis PSF image with 400 x 400 pixels

psfgen instrument=EPN energy=3000 coordtype=TEL x=600 y=1.0466 level=ELLBETA xsize=400
ysize=400 output=psf.fits

This command produces an image containing the PSF of the EPIC-pn camera, at a position 600 arcseconds off axis and with an azimuthal angle of 1.0466 radians (60 degrees), for photons of 3000 eV. The image is binned into 1.0 x 1.0 arcsecond square pixels (ELLBETA mode) and has a size of 400 x 400 pixels.
