thresholdIsoph [nspid]MultiframeDetector WSA NonSurvey Isophotal analysis threshold {catalogue extension keyword:  THRESHOL} real 4 counts -0.9999995e9 ??
Tunable parameter, the default is to set this to 1.5 skynoise as a compromise between detecting close to the limit of the data and not being swamped by spurious sources. It is possible to push the data limit fainter but at the expense of a large increase in spurious sources. LSBG detection requires a more subtle add-on to the catalogue and could be added given suitable demand.

trailID [nspid]SatelliteDetection WSA NonSurvey Unique identifier for this detection, or default for no detection bigint 8   -99999999 ID_MAIN
This attribute is included to provide a single identification number for real detection rows (objID>0) when making cross-neighbour tables between source and detection. In general, users should NOT use this attribute for look-ups between the source and detection tables, because every detector frame has a default row in the detection table, so there are many, many thousands of rows with objID=-99999999 in each detection table which will be associated with every look-up of objID=-99999999 from source (i.e. those rows for which there is no detection or no frame in a particular passband). See the glossary entry for objID in source tables for more information.
