ORAC-DR – imaging data reduction
ORAC-DR is a general-purpose automatic data-reduction pipeline environment. This document describes its use to reduce imaging data collected at the United Kingdom Infrared Telescope (UKIRT) with the UFTI, UIST, IRCAM, and Michelle instruments; at the Anglo-Australian Telescope (AAT) with the IRIS2 instrument; at the Very Large Telescope with ISAAC and NACO; from Magellan’s Classic Cam, at Gemini with NIRI, and from the Isaac Newton Group using INGRID. It outlines the algorithms used and how to make minor modifications to them, and how to correct for errors made at the telescope.
