Welcome TESS followers!
Just a reminder that next week is the TESS Science Conference II, which will run from the 2nd of August through to the 6th. This is a virtual meeting with the opening reception on August 1st: 19:00 - 21:00 UT, 15:00 - 17:00 EDT. The program for this meeting contains posters, talks, and splinter sessions.
A TESS GI splinter session discussing the tools and tutorials available for analyzing TESS data will occur on August 4th at 9:30-10:30 EDT. Below you will find materials that will help you prepare for the session should you wish to attend.
|TESS fact sheet||Download||This fact sheet provides an introduction to TESS and Lightkurve.||An introduction to TESS data||Download||In this tutorial, we teach the user how to search for, download, and create TESS light curves.|
|Noise removal tutorial||Download||In this tutorial, we introduce the user to the Corrector class. We use these correctors to remove scattered light and noise from our data.|
|Correcting for crowding||Download||In this tutorial, we examine crowding of targets and how to correct for it.|
Note that the session will focus on the removal of noise and scattered light from various TESS data products. However, we plan to run the session more like a workshop in which you, the user, can ask us questions about TESS data and its reduction. If you are having problems reducing data or would like some help with a specific TESS issue, this is the place to ask.
We hope to see you there!
