Output files

These files are all written to the appropriate simopsubdir subdirectory.

  1. For each observation, instrument, exposure and band: a mask image dataset which specifies those parts of the sky on which simulated sources are to be placed.
  2. If bkgstyle is set to any value but `products': for each observation, instrument, exposure and band: a real-valued image of the expectation value, in average counts per image pixel, of the instrumental background.
  3. A single map which is supposed to be a mosaic of all reciprocal-sensitivity maps relevant to the simulation in hand. In fact at present the exposure maps at the refband are used instead of reciprocal-sensitivity maps.
