Parameters

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

ParameterMand Type Default Constraints
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  
Detector selection, 0: combined exposures, 1: MOS, 2: PN.
 
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.
 
elowyesint400 
Low energy for band in eV
 
ehighyesint1250 
High energy for band in eV
 
binningyesint1 
Binning control with 1 for no binning, other integers for binning.
 
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 
Solar wind charge exchange background control, "yes" to subtract the SWCX background image.
 
maskyesdatasetmask.fit 
Mask image file name (defaults to using exposure mask).
 
clobbernobooleanyesT/F
Clobber existing files?
