Help Logs/Tips Question: I have a question concerning the colbias command in the noao.bias package of IRAF. I am working with a telescope which uses columns 1-48 and 2096-2158 as overscan regions. The bias is found by the colbias command. I was wondering if it is poissible to set up the parameters in such a way that both sections (so 1-48 and 2096-2158) are used for this purpose. Could you help me with this question?
