DECam Color Images from Co-added exposures.
I have created a set of nice/pretty pictures of DECam exposures from First Light data and from previously known clusters targeted during SVA1. These color images are available to the collaboration and can be used for PR purposes and should be credited to Dark Energy Survey Data Management (DESDM) at NCSA.
The color images of DECam exposures were created using STIFF (version 2.1.3) from co-added fits files using SWArp. I used images that were processes through the initial steps of the DESDM pipeline (crosstalk, bias, flats, alignment) and were futher cleaned of spurius objects using mkbleed to interpolate over saturated stars and bleed trails (with interpolation on) and immask (0.2.1) to mask out and detect satellite trails and cosmic rays.
