Data Reduction Frequently Asked Questions

My NODDING data are not processed.


NODDING DataSets must have at least two nodding positions to be processed successfully. If a template is aborted the user may receive incomplete data, i.e. with only one nodding position. The DataOrganiser in the current release will not mark such DataSets as incomplete and the recipe xsh_scired_slit_nod 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 rightclicking 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 NODDING data individually with the xsh_scired_slit_stare recipe.

Please note that the default parameters for xsh_scired_slit_stare assume that the object is positioned at the center of the slit, which usually not true for NODDING data. So you may have to adjust the extraction parameters accordingly.
