edet2sky (esky2det-1.19) [xmmsas_20211130_0941-20.0.0]

Parameters

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

ParameterMand Type Default Constraints
datastylenostringsetuser|set
By use of this parameter, the user can specify the style of input and output desired. If datastyle=`user', the task looks for position information for a single source in the parameters ra and dec. If datastyle=`set', the task looks for the source positions stored in columns RA and DEC of a FITS table specified by the parameter intab.
 
intabnotableinset.ds:INPUT 
Name of the FITS table that contains the sky positions. Active only if datastyle=`set'.
 
withouttabnobooleanno 
Active only if datastyle=`set'. If withouttab=`yes', the task looks for outtab and writes the output to this file. Otherwise the output is written to columns in the intab.
 
outtabnotableoutset.ds:OUTPUT 
Name of the FITS table that is to contain the camera-centric positions. Active only if datastyle=`set' and withouttab=`yes'.
 
Xyesdouble0.0 
The X coordinate of the input position. Active only if datastyle=`user'. This refers to a detector coordinate if inputunit=`det' or a raw chip coordinate if inputunit=`raw'.
 
Yyesdouble0.0 
The Y coordinate of the input position. Active only if datastyle=`user'. This refers to a detector coordinate if inputunit=`det' or a raw chip coordinate if inputunit=`raw'.
 
ccdyesinteger1 
The CCD number relevant for an input RAW coordinate. Active only if datastyle=`user' and inputunit=`raw'.
 
withheadernobooleanyes 
Active only if datastyle=`user'. If withheader=`yes', the task prints some lines of header information before printing the source position lines; if `no', this is omitted. The `no' setting is convenient for those wishing to run edet2sky from a script.
 
mosccdnodenostringprimaryprimary|redundant
This allows the user to specify the readout node for positions on the MOS instruments. It is enabled only if outunit=`raw', and ignored for PN.
 
calinfostylenostringsetset|user
If `set' the task obtains information about the instrument and spacecraft pointing from calinfoset; if `user', this information is obtained from parameters instrument, datetime, scattra, scattdec and scattapos.
 
calinfosetyesdatasetcalinfo.ds 
The name of the dataset in which information about the instrument and spacecraft pointing etc is stored in keywords.
 
instrumentyesstringEMOS1EMOS1|EMOS2|EPN
Active only if calinfostyle=`user'. The name of the relevant XMM instrument.
 
datetimeyesstring0000-00-00T00:00:00 
If calinfostyle=`user', the date and time are expected via this string parameter.
 
scattrayesangle0.0$0\le$attra$\le360$
The right ascenscion (in any of the allowed angle-parameter formats) of the spacecraft pointing. Active only if calinfostyle=`user'.
 
scattdecyesangle0.0$-90\le$attdec$\le90$
The declination (in any of the allowed angle-parameter formats) of the spacecraft pointing. Active only if calinfostyle=`user'.
 
scattaposyesangle0.0$0\le$attapos$\le360$
The position angle (in any of the allowed angle-parameter formats) of the spacecraft pointing. Active only if calinfostyle=`user'.
