  journal={arXiv: Solar and Stellar Astrophysics},
context: The combination of image restoration and a Fabry-P\'{e}rot interferometer (FPI) based instrument in solar observations results in specific calibration issues. FPIs generally show variations over the field-of-view, while in the image restoration process, the 1-to-1 relation between pixel space and image space is lost, thus complicating any correcting for such variations. aims: We develop a data reduction method that takes these issues into account and minimizes the resulting errors… Expand
