Parameters

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

ParameterMand Type Default Constraints
smoothingcountsyesint100 
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.
 
elowlistyesint400 750 
Low energy for successive bands in eV
 
ehighlistyesint750 1250 
High energy for successive bands in eV
 
binningyesint1 
Binning control, number of pixels (in both dimensions) to be binned.
 
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.
 
withoffsetbkgcontrolyesboolyes 
Offset background control, "yes" to subtract the offset background image. This is a feature currently under development and is not yet functional.
 
withmaskcontrolyesboolyes 
Mask control, "yes" for using a mask image (pixel with 1 in image will be included, pixel with 0 will be excluded).
 
maskyesdatasetmask.fit 
Mask image file name.
 
fillyesint1 
Number of passes to fill in empty pixels. If a zero pixel has three or more non-zero neighbors, the pixel will be the average value of those neighbors.
 
clobbernobooleanyesT/F
Clobber existing files?
