- The principle of evigweight
ignores the Point Spread Function.
It should never be used for analysing point sources.
- Events outside the field of view (flagged as OUT_OF_FOV),
outside the CCD (flagged as OUT_OF_CCD_WINDOW), or
outside the energy range (flagged as OUTSIDE_THRESHOLDS),
get WEIGHT=0. As a result they are automatically ignored
when creating images or spectra.
