Developer's notes

General comment on image data: All image data used in any of the EPIC detection tasks (count images, background maps, detections masks, exposure images, sensitivity images) are FITS images binned in in sky coordinates (i.e., projected onto the sphere) and have the same binning. Suggested values are: 640 x 640 pixels of 4 x 4 arcsec.
