CCD overscan

CCD frames typically include a nunber of rows/columns not exposed to the light. The pixels in these rows often contain high counts and can affect some of the automatic reduction procedures. It is prudent to clip off these rows/columns before reduction proceeds. They will be the same for all frames and can thus be removed using a simple looping command procedure.
