Definition of Quality Flags for GLIMPSE

Option: x0 (0=show all flags, x=hexadecimal)

|0x01  |(Sextractor) The object has neighbors, bright and close enough to significantly bias the photometry, or bad pixels (more than 10% of the integrated area affected). |
|0x02  |(Sextractor) The object was originally blended with another one. |
|0x04  |(Sextractor) At least one pixel of the object is saturated (or very close to). |
|0x08  |(Sextractor) The object is truncated (too close to an image boundary). |
|0x10  |(Sextractor) Object's aperture data are incomplete or corrupted. |
|0x20  |(Sextractor) Object's isophotal data are incomplete or corrupted. |
|0x40  |(Sextractor) A memory overflow occurred during deblending. |
|0x80  |(Sextractor) A memory overflow occurred during extraction. |
|0x100   ||
|0x200  |(COMBO-17) potential problem from bright neighbours or  reflexes from the optics (check images) |
|0x400  |(COMBO-17) uncorrected hot pixels |
|0x800  |(COMBO-17) erroneous photometry (set interactively) |
