eootepileupmask (ebkgmap-2.10.1) [xmmsas_20211130_0941-20.0.0]


Input Files

  1. (Mandatory) a dataset with an exposure cube (without vignetting) in the primary image extension. The output of task eexpchipmap is suitable. A description of the cube format can be found in the documentation of that task.

  2. (Mandatory) A calibrated event list for the relevant EPIC camera, created by either emchain or epchain or alike.

  3. (Only mandatory if outputstyle=`sky') a FITS dataset, which contains an image in its primary extension. The name of this dataset should be supplied to parameter templateset. The output images (maskset and possibly rateset and pileupmaskset) are constructed so as to match the pixel dimensions and World Coordinates of templateset.

  4. (Only mandatory if outputstyle=`sky' and attstyle=`binnedset') a file output by attbin, containing a table ATT_BINS with columns TSTOP, RA, DEC, PA and IS_GOOD. The table should also contain a TIMEZERO keyword.
