Parameters

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

ParameterMand Type Default Constraints
smoothingcountsyesint50 
The number of counts to accumulate for the smoothing
 
thresholdmaskingyesreal0.02 
The scale factor for excluding regions from the smoothing based on a mask image. In the default mode the average exposure is calculated and then any pixel with exposure less than fraction*average value is excluded.
 
detectoryesint 0|1
Detector, 1 for a specific instrument and exposure, 0 for the combined image (i.e., the output of comb).
 
elowyesint400 
The low energy for the band in eV
 
ehighyesint1250 
The high energy for the band in eV
 
binningyesint1 
Binning control with 1 for no binning, and integers greater than 1 for binning that number of pixels in each dimension.
 
withpartcontrolyesboolyes 
Particle background control, "yes" to subtract the model particle background image.
 
withsoftcontrolyesboolno 
Soft proton background control, "yes" to subtract the soft proton background image.
 
withswcxcontrolyesboolno 
Solar wind charge exchange background control, "yes" to subtract the SWCX background image.
 
withmaskcontrolyesboolno 
Control for including an additional masking image.
 
maskfileyesdataset  
The file name for an image to provide additional masking if desired. If left blank then there will be no additional masking. The mask images must be the same size and projection as the other images.
 
prefixyesstring1S001 
Prefix defining the exposure used, with the esas nomenclature, eg. S003 means PN S003 exposure, while 1S002 and 2S003 mean MOS1 S002 and MOS2 S003 exposures, respectively.
 
clobbernobooleanyesT/F
Clobber existing files?
