command line utilityΒΆ

Command-line utility to run TESS photometry from command-line.


To run a random star from the TODO list:

>>> python --random


To run a specific star, you can provide the TIC-identifier:

>>> python --starid=182092046


You can be very specific in the photometry methods and input to use. The following example runs PSF photometry on Target Pixel Files (tpf) of TIC 182092046, and produces plots in the output directory as well.

>>> python --source=tpf --method=psf --plot --starid=182092046


run_tessphot is only meant for small tests and running single stars. For large scale calculation with many stars, you should use m:py:func:mpi_scheduler.
