Where are my dmask files?
Posted by Elena Scire on 20 April 2010 09:01 AM
Pipeline products after S18.5 no longer provide dmasks as they contain misleading and incomplete information. They have been superceded by the information contained in the the imask files. The imasks are more robust, include flagging of various artifacts that are not present in dmasks and make full use of the saturation correction made by the pipeline.

For more information, see the IRAC Instrument Handbook Appendix A.
