make_catalog.py command line utility¶
Create catalogs of stars in a given TESS observing sector.
In order to create catalogs for sector 14 simple call this program from the commandline like so:
>>> python make_catalog.py 14
This will create the catalog files (*.sqlite) corresponding to sector 14
in the directory defined in the
TESSPHOT_INPUT envirnonment variable.
This function requires the user to be connected to the TASOC network at Aarhus University. It connects to the TASOC database to get a complete list of all stars in the TESS Input Catalog (TIC), which is a very large table.
