This program will prepare the photometry on individual stars by doing all the operations which requires the full-size FFI images, like the following: * Estimating sky background for all images. * Estimating spacecraft jitter. * Creating average image. * Restructuring data into HDF5 files for efficient I/O operations.

The program can simply be run like the following, which will create a number of HDF5 files (*.hdf5) in the TESSPHOT_INPUT directory.

>>> python

The program internally calls the function photometry.prepare.create_hdf5() with the given parameters.
