Source image

The source image shoule be input in sky (X/Y) or celestial (RA/DEC) coordinates. The task expects to find astrometry keywords in a certain part of the primary header and will exit with an error if the keywords are not found. Standard images produced by evselect and xmmselect and the pipeline will process ok. Specifically images need to have the coordinate transformation (CTYPE1 keyword) as "RA—TAN" or "EQU–CAR".

A set of source images containing the required RA/DEC position may be used.
