deconvolver.clipimage - Function

3.1.2 Zero all pixels where Stokes I is below a threshold


Description

All pixels in the image with Stokes I less than some threshold are set to zero. This is useful prior to self-calibration where one oftens wishes to remove negative pixels from the model. Note that if the image has polarization information, then the polarized part of a pixel is also set to zero if Stokes I is less than the threshold.
