Next: Commands in the CCD Up: CCD Reductions Previous: Mosaicing of Frames


Besides the standard product described in the previous sections, a number of additional commands is implemented or will be considered and implemented later. E.g. within MIDAS a command to remove cosmic rays already exists. Hence, this command can be implemented in the standard CCD pipeline procedure. After the data have been calibrated, one might need to combine a number of science frames into a combined frame. A tool for doing this should correct for possible differences in sky background, exposure time, positions, etc. In a previous version of the CCD context such a tool did exist. We might consider porting this tool to the new CCD context.
