catsetnodatasetcatextract.ds 
File name for the FITS binary table containing the external catalogue, which is used as the reference of the source positions.
 
mingoodnointeger10

minfitnoreal5.0 
Minimum overall goodness-of-fit for updating of RA_CORR and DEC_CORR.
 
maxoffsetnoreal10.0 
Maximum resulting offset in arc-seconds
 
syserrnoreal0.1 
Assumed systematic position error in arc-seconds
 
maxpofferrnoreal0.75
