This task combines the images produced for individual observations into larger field mosaics. This includes the event and exposure images (output from mos-spectra and pn-spectra), QPB background images (output from mos_back and pn_back, both processed by rot-im-det-sky), the soft proton images (output from proton, and the solar wind charge exchange background (output from swcx), also processed by rot-im-det-sky). Pixel size, image size, coordinate system, and central coordinates are all user selected.
