flat command

This page is from the ING manual INS-DAS-29 Operations manual for UltraDAS.


Flat drives the camera in the same ways as the  run  command (q.v.) but marks the observation's file as a flat field which improves the handling of the data. Multflat does a sequence of flat observations.


   flat [<camera>] <exposuretime> ["<title>"]
   multflat [<camera>] <n-obs> <exposure-time> ["<title>"]
where exposure-time is the exposure time for one cycle in seconds and n-obs is the number of cycles in multflat. The title-string must be enclosed in double quotes. The default title is "Flat Field".
