Example 2: Combining EPIC data into one spectrum

multiespecget tables='m1_evts.ds m2_evts.ds epn_evts.ds' srcexp='(RA,DEC)
in circle(187.879,64.236,0.0166)' backexp='(RA,DEC) in
circle(187.843,64.201,0.02)' calindexsets='ccf.cif ccf.cif ccf.cif'

In addition to the files for the individual instruments, this command produces a single source spectrum, background spectrum, and response matrix representing the combined data from the three cameras. The spectra and matrices are weighted by their exposure time.
