Subject: backsacle gives error about X/Y and DETX/DETY
Full_Name: Nakisa Nooraee
Submission from: (NULL) (193.171.80.106)


Hello 
In extracting the spectrum of a point source in MOS image, I got this error. 

** backscale::arfgen: error (RegionInvalid), DSS regions defined in X/Y and
DETX/DETY space are unbounded. The ARF can not be calculated

I have used physical coordinates in selecting the source and the background
regions.
May I ask you to tell me what my mistake is ?

thanks
Nakisa

Dear Nakisa,

Could you please give me more information ? How are you defining the region ?
Which task are you running ? Can you send me the command line you use and
also the full output log ?

Dear Ignacio,
I got that error by typing this command 
> backscale spectrumset=MOS1_source_spectrum.fits
badpixlocation=EPICclean_MOS1.fits

I have defined the region file like 
> evselect table=EPICclean_MOS1.fits withspectrumset=yes
spectrumset=MOS1_background_spectrum.fits\
             energycolumn=PI spectralbinsize=5 withspecranges=yes
specchannelmin=0 specchannelmax=11999 expression=#XMMEA_EM &&
(PATTERN<=12) &&
((X,Y) IN circle(43400.5,26600.5,2438)


thanks

Dear Nakisa,

The file you send me is MOS1_source_spectrum.fits. Be aware that in the
eveselect call you are creating MOS1_background_spectrum.fits. The file 
MOS1_source_spectrum.fits you sent me does not have a region defined.
You need to run evselect including in the expression= the region from
which you want to extract the spectrum. If you want to include the whole
field of view, then use a box that includes the whole field of view. 

Let me know if this fixes your problem.

Thanks,

Ignacio de la Calle

Dear Ignacio, 
I have used the expression as it is written in the thread. What is the exact
form of the expression? something different with what is written in the thread?

thanks

Dear Nakisa,

Can you send me the expression you used to create the file:
MOS1_source_spectrum.fits

you sent me the one to create:
MOS1_background_spectrum.fits

Thanks.

Dear Ignacio, 
here is the command I used 
evselect table=EPICclean_MOS1.fits withspectrumset=yes 
spectrumset=MOS1_source_spectrum.fits  energycolumn=PI  spectralbinsize=15
withspecranges=yes specchannelmin=0 specchannelmax=11999  expression=
'#XMMEA_EM && (PATTERN<=12) && ((X,Y) IN
circle(25900.5,24480.5,439))'

I attach MOS1_source_spectrum.fits too. 

cheers
Nakisa

Dear Nakisa,

This second fits file you sent me is different to the previous one. Both are
named 
MOS1_source_spectrum.fits, but this second one contains a block named REG00105
which
is the one needed by backscale and the reason why it was failing in the first
case.
Does the backscale command still fails when you use the file that contains the 
REG00105 block in the header ?

Can you tell me which thread are you following ?

Dear Ignacio,
I am using this script 
http://xmm.esa.int/sas/current/documentation/threads/MOS_spectrum_thread.shtml

The most recent MOS1_source_spectrum.fits, that I sent you is created by adding 
'' to the expression, It was my mistake on typing the command line. The problem
is by running  backscale command on  MOS1_source_spectrum.fits


backscale::arfgen:- CCF constituents accessed by the calibration server:
CifEntry{EMOS1, FILTERTRANSX, 12, /usr/local/ccf/EMOS1_FILTERTRANSX_0012.CCF,
1998-01-01T00:00:00.000}
CifEntry{EMOS1, LINCOORD, 18, /usr/local/ccf/EMOS1_LINCOORD_0018.CCF,

2000-01-13T00:00:00.000}


and for the back_spectrum that I have produced it with the same syntax that I
did source_fits, again I got the 
** backscale::arfgen: error (RegionInvalid), DSS regions defined in X/Y and
DETX/DETY space are unbounded. The ARF can not be calculated



I am attaching the MOS1_source_spectrum.fits, May I ask you how do you check the
header of these files? I check it with fv but could not find the word REG0105.



Thanks

The file you attached is called MOS1_background_spectrum.fits, not
MOS1_source_spectrum.fits, and it does not have the REG0105 table on it. 

Can you send me the list of commands you run after you have run epproc ?

Dear Nakisa, 

This set of commands is fine. The files MOS1_source_spectrum.fits and
MOS1_background_spectrum.fits produced this way should have in their 
header a block starting with REG. This contains the information of the
region used that backscale needs. Also, the header contains the command
that was used to create the file. Check that you can see the expressions
in the header of the Primary block.

The header of file MOS1_source_spectrum.fits should have a line containing,

#XMMEA_EM && (PATTERN<=12) && ((X,Y) IN
circle(25960.5,24520.5,628.13258))

and MOS1_background_spectrum.fits should have a line containing,

#XMMEA_EM && (PATTERN<=12) && ((X,Y) IN
circle(26760.5,32520.5,753.0524))

make sure that these two file shave been generated with the commands
you send me. If you want to, send me the two files and I will check.

Thanks,

Dear Ignacio,
thanks for the reply and sorry for the delay in response. I had to work 
and prepare something else.

I repeated the steps and found my mistake, in producing gti file I mad a 
typo mistake.
I checked the header of  MOS1_source_spectrum.fits, it includes:

SLCTEXPR= '(FLAG & 0x766ba000) == 0 && (PATTERN<=12) &&
((X,Y) IN 
circle(25880&'
CONTINUE  '.5,24520.5,566.66508))' / Filtering expression used by evselect

I assumed it is correct now, but on the step of rebinning data with 
specgroup I got this error

 > specgroup spectrumset=MOS1_source_spectrum.fits mincounts=20 
oversample=3 rmfset=MOS1.rmf arfset=MOS1.arf 
backgndset=MOS1_background_spectrum.fits
** specgroup: fatal error (CannotLocateCIF), No file name for 
Calibration Index File specified and environment variable `SAS_CCF' is 
not set either - cannot continue.

May I ask you to give me a hint about it?
thanks,
Nakisa

You need to follow the steps as described in:

http://xmm.esac.esa.int/sas/current/documentation/threads/sas_startup_thread.shtml

The error indicates that the SAS_CCF variable has not been set. Type sasverion
on the command line (where you have initialize SAS) and see if the variable has
been properly set or if the file ccf.cif exist.

Dear Nakisa,

This is an XSPEC error. Please refer to the manual for more help. 

The files have to be prepared in order for XSPEC to be able to 
interpret properly what you are loading. Again, this is something
particular for XSPEC, so I would recommend you read the manual.
Also, make sure you have followed the last steps in the following
thread:

http://xmm.esac.esa.int/sas/current/documentation/threads/MOS_spectrum_thread.shtml
