Light curve extraction

Project description


A pure-Python interactive tool for extracting light curves from time series photometric data.

Much of the inspiration for this program came from the WQED light curve extraction software, but phot2lc includes several new features and the ease of installation that comes with pure-Python programs.


  • Comparison star selection
  • Aperture size selection
  • Polynomial detrending
  • Sigma clipping
  • Manual data point removal
  • Barycentric time corrections


  • Python 3.6 (or later)
  • matplotlib 3.1.3 (or later)
  • Astropy 4.0 (or later)
