Release of Web TESS Target Tool

News article posted on by Tom Barclay

We are delighted to announce the release of the Web TESS Target Tool. The tool enables potential TESS users to: * determine whether their targets are observable in TESS Cycle 1 * estimate the noise level on their targets * calculate a brightness of their targets in the TESS bandpass

The functionality of this tool is also available via command line tools ticgen and tvguide.

For comments and questions about this and any other aspects of the Cycle 1 call for proposals, contact us at
