command line utilityΒΆ

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 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.
