Plotting an Averaged Line

Mira can plot an averaged line, which is a mathematical combination of all adjacent horizontal lines (rows) or adjacent vertical lines (columns). The range of adjacent lines is controlled by the extent of the Image Cursor. The averaging mode is selected using the Plot Average Mode command which appears in various menus in Mira. To learn more about averaging modes, see Plot Averaging Modes.
