NAME

       vmimstandard - Reduce an imaging standard star exposure.

SYNOPSIS

       esorex vmimstandard [OPTIONS] FILE.sof

DESCRIPTION

       This  recipe  is  used  to  determine the instrumental magnitude of the
       stars matching the entries of a photometric catalog. The same procedure
       applied by the recipe vmimobsstare is used to reduce the standard field
       image. SExtractor v2.1.6 is used for the source detection task.

       Input files:

         DO category:              Type:       Explanation:         Required:

         MASTER_BIAS               Calib       Master bias             Y
         MASTER_DARK               Calib       Master dark             .

         IMG_MASTER_SKY_FLAT       Calib       Master sky flat         Y
         PHOTOMETRIC_CATALOG       Calib       Photometric catalog     Y
         PHOTOMETRIC_TABLE         Calib       Photometric table       Y
         CCD_TABLE                 Calib       Bad pixel table         .

       Output files:

         DO category:              Data type:  Explanation:
         IMG_STAR_MATCH_TABLE      FITS table  List of found standard stars
         IMG_STANDARD_REDUCED      FITS image  Reduced scientific exposure
         IMG_GALAXY_TABLE          FITS table  List of detected objects

       The galaxy table is  the  output  of  SExtractor  converted  into  FITS
       format.  The star match table is the list of identified standard stars,
       with their positions on sky and CCD and their instrumental and  catalog
       magnitudes.
