class astropy.convolution.Tophat2DKernel(radius, **kwargs)[source]

Bases: astropy.convolution.Kernel2D

2D Tophat filter kernel.

The Tophat filter is an isotropic smoothing filter. It can produce artifacts when applied repeatedly on the same data.

radius : int

Radius of the filter kernel.

mode : str, optional
One of the following discretization modes:
  • ‘center’ (default)
    Discretize model by taking the value at the center of the bin.
  • ‘linear_interp’
    Discretize model by performing a bilinear interpolation between the values at the corners of the bin.
  • ‘oversample’
    Discretize model by taking the average on an oversampled grid.
  • ‘integrate’
    Discretize model by integrating the model over the bin.
factor : number, optional

Factor of oversampling. Default factor = 10.


Kernel response:

import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
from astropy.convolution import Tophat2DKernel
tophat_2D_kernel = Tophat2DKernel(40)
plt.imshow(tophat_2D_kernel, interpolation='none', origin='lower')
plt.xlabel('x [pixels]')
plt.ylabel('y [pixels]')
