espfilt (espfilt-4.3) [xmmsas_20211130_0941-20.0.0]

Parameters

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

Note that the rangescale parameter default is appropriate for the MOS, but not for the pn; for the pn the default should be 15.0 Some SAS options are also interpreted by espfilt before being passed to its constituent tasks:
