uses the same weighted sum of the input pointings as
the `joint approach' software (see Section 21.6). Normally
the expected rms noise in the image is determined from the images
themselves (image item
rms). However if this item is missing,
or if you wish to override it to get a different weighting, you may enter
the expected rms noise via keyword
rms. Also note that linmos,
by default, fully corrects for the primary beam attenuation even
when this excessively amplifies the noise. The
can be used to reduce the correction at the edge of the field, and thus
avoid excessive noise amplification.
Typical inputs to linmos are:
|Use wildcards to select all images.
|The output linearly mosaiced image.
|Generally left unset.
|Leave blank to fully correct primary beam,
|or set to taper at the edge of the mosaic.
