The Spiffy Python for Full Frame Images package is a collection of tools for simulating TESS images. Please note, this is not the official TESS Simulated Image Generator now being developed at MIT.
Change to the
test/ directory and type:
Once you have it installed, you should be able to start to play,
either through the command line in
ipython or through a script, by
SPyFFI.Observation object, and then using that
create() method to generate all its exposures.
Observation takes as an input a Python dictionary, which contains the
various input parameters (whether you want a test pattern or stars
drawn from the real sky, whether images should be jittered, whether
stars should be given cartoon light curves, how many exposures of each
cadence to make, etc...).
An introduction to some of the parameters you
may want to change is available in
scripts/demonstration.py, or you
could try the following from an
from SPyFFI.Observation import Observation, default o = Observation(default) o.create()
For installation instructions, please see
