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 xsh_scired_slit_offset recipe. The DataOrganiser in the current release will mark such DataSets as incomplete. If you attempt to process such datasets with xsh_scired_slit_offset the workflow will ignore them. Instead 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.
