Data Reduction Frequently Asked Questions

My OFFSET data are not processed.

Offset mode data containing only object or only sky data cannot be processed by the pipeline. In such cases the workflow will not attempt to process these data, but will ignore them. The DataOrganiser in the current release will not mark such DataSets as incomplete and the recipe xsh_scired_slit_offset will fail. In this case please use for the DataOrganiser the OCA file xsh_wkf_stare.oca instead of the default one xsh_wkf.oca. This is done by right-clicking on the DataOrganiser, selecting Configure Actor, replacing the name of the OCA file in the first line of the pop-up window and clicking on Commit . This change will result in the pipeline processing the offset mode data individually with the xsh_scired_slit_stare recipe.
