Using com.zero_lowhits causes samples to be excluded from the
estimation of the common mode if they fall in regions of the map where the number of samples
falling in each pixel is higher than com.zero_lowhits times the mean number of samples per pixel,
averaged over the map. A value of zero means that no masking of low hits regions is performed.
The mask is updated on each iteration.
