Python package for generating light curves from Kepler and K2 collateral data.

Using smear data, you can recover photometry of bright stars (Kp <~ 8) that were saturated or otherwise not conventionally observed by Kepler/K2.

This is an evolving body of code with complicated dependencies. We are endeavouring to simplify this and produce a more straightforward standalone package.

Installation

git clone https://github.com/benjaminpope/keplersmear/
cd keplersmear
python setup.py install --user

Requires

  • NumPy, SciPy, astropy, jplephem, de423, George, SuzPyUtils, fitsio, PyKE

Detrending requires

  • k2sc (K2), KeplerSys (nominal Kepler)
