16 July 2008 Automated HST/STIS reference file generation pipeline using OPUS

Bias and Dark reference files are part of the basic reduction of the CCD data taken by the Space Telescope Imaging Spectrograph (STIS) aboard the Hubble Space Telescope (HST). At STScI, the STIS team has been creating these reference files using the Bias and Dark Pipeline. This pipeline system starts with automatic retrieval of bias and dark exposures from the HST archive after they have been ingested. After data retrieval, a number of automatic scripts is executed in a manner compatible with the OPUS pipeline architecture. We encourage any group looking to streamline a stepwise calibration process to look into this software.
