Output Files

  1. File containing the RAWX/RAWY of the bad (sets of) pixels, any extent in the Y direction, and the type of fault. The extension name is BADPIX, and the columns are named RAWX, RAWY, TYPE and YEXTENT. This file can be accessed by badpix. Attributes written are: TELESCOP INSTRUME CCDID EXP_ID OBS_ID QUADRANT CCDNODE(MOS) WINDOWX0 WINDOWY0 WINDOWDX WINDOWDY.

  2. Optional map of the bad pixels found. Zero values exist at the RAWX/RAWY positions of the bad pixels found in the current badpixfind run, the previously uplinked CCF bad pixels, and optionally, their neighbours. Values of unity are given to the good pixels. The keyword GOODPIX (number of good pixels in map) is written to the map header.
