sd.scantable.convert_flux - Function

5.1.2 Return a scan where all spectra are converted to Jy or K
Description

Return a scan where all spectra are converted to either Jansky or Kelvin depending upon the flux units of the scan table. By default the function tries to look the values up internally. If it can’t find them (or if you want to over-ride), you must specify EITHER jyperk OR eta (and D which it will try to look up also if you don’t set it). jyperk takes precedence if you set both.

If insitu is True, or insitu is None and sd.rcParams[’insitu’] is True, the method will not return the result, but apply operation on this scantable.
