omdetect (omdetect-5.41) [xmmsas_20211130_0941-20.0.0]

Background image

The background image produced by omdetect is first constructed by using a median-smoothing algorithm that filters out bright pixels. When the sources have been found, the image is refined by masking-out source regions and interpolating across them.
