Jim's Stellar Mass Tool

  • start an xterm (on observer2); cd annis/smass; python; import galMass
  • thereafter, when you see a nice galaxy:
  • >>> galMass.show(ra, dec) # ra, dec is in decimal, only 2 decimal places needed (2' search radius)
    • # dist = 10.00 is a magic number, where the distance(zphot) < 2 Mpc and zphot >= -0.004667 (flagged
    • # dist = 20.00 is a magic number, where the zphot is < -0.004667
    • # disterr = 10.00 is a magic number, where ned-d didn't have an error estimate
    • # disterr = 14.28571429 is a magic number for distance from redshift
    • # disterr = 64.28571428 is a magic number for distance from photo-z
    • don't believe stellar masses when the g-i color is negative, there trust the abs mag
