The MUSE 2.6.0 pipeline

These pages describe the python interface for the MUSE pipeline recipes.

Standard recipes

muse_astrometry
Compute an astrometric solution.
muse_bias
Combine several separate bias images into one master bias file.
muse_create_sky
Create night sky model from selected pixels of an exposure of empty sky.
muse_dark
Combine several separate dark images into one master dark file and locate hot pixels.
muse_exp_combine
Combine several exposures into one datacube.
muse_flat
Combine several separate flat images into one master flat file, trace slice locations, and locate dark pixels.
muse_geometry
Compute relative location of the slices within the field of view and measure the instrumental PSF on the detectors.
muse_scibasic
Remove the instrumental signature from the data of each CCD and convert them from an image into a pixel table.
muse_scipost
Prepare reduced and combined science products.
muse_standard
Create a flux response curve from a standard star exposure.
muse_wavecal
Detect arc emission lines and determine the wavelength solution for each slice.

Additional recipes

muse_ampl
Determine the instrumental throughput from exposures taken with the pico-amplifier / photo diode readings.
muse_exp_align
Create a coordinate offset table to be used to align exposures during exposure combination.
muse_illum
Dummy recipe to convert a raw illumination flat field into a DFS product
muse_lingain
Compute the gain and a model of the residual non-linearity for each detector quadrant
muse_lsf
Compute the LSF
muse_qi_mask
Create image masks for use with the quick image reconstruction.
muse_scipost_apply_astrometry
Calibrate astrometry for MUSE pixel tables.
muse_scipost_calibrate_flux
Calibrate flux for MUSE pixel tables.
muse_scipost_combine_pixtables
Combine MUSE pixel tables, either from different IFUs, or from different exposures, or both.
muse_scipost_correct_dar
Apply DAR correction for MUSE pixel tables.
muse_scipost_correct_rv
Apply RV correction for MUSE pixel tables.
muse_scipost_make_cube
Make a MUSE cube from a MUSE pixel table.
muse_scipost_raman
Remove of 4GLSF Raman emission.
muse_scipost_subtract_sky
Subtract night sky model.
muse_scipost_subtract_sky_simple
Subtract night sky spectrum.
muse_twilight
Combine several twilight skyflats into one cube, compute correction factors for each IFU, and create a smooth 3D illumination correction.

Bug reports

If you experience an unexpected behavior of any component of the MUSE pipeline recipes package, please, first refer to the list of known problems and limitations in the pipeline manual of the current MUSE pipeline release.

For any other issues or requests, please, send a report to the ESO User Support Department, describing:

  • the MUSE pipeline version,
  • the version of your OS and C compiler,
  • the exact sequence of actions that were performed before the problem occurred,
  • what were precisely the symptoms and the possible error message(s),
  • whether the problem is repeatable.
