quick information on TESS targets

Project description

ticinfo

I wanted a way to quickly see some info about a star based on it's TICID, so I made this tool.

Maybe someone else will find it useful

pip install ticinfo

to use

% toco 441420236

    ID        ra       dec     pmRA  pmDEC    eclong     eclat    Tmag Vmag Kmag Teff   rad      mass     d

Target name: V* AU Mic
The target is in constellation Microscopium

if you just have coordiantes you can use

% toco 311.289718 -31.3409
    ID        ra       dec     pmRA  pmDEC    eclong     eclat    Tmag Vmag Kmag Teff   rad      mass     d

Target name: V* AU Mic
The target is in constellation Microscopium

or, if you know the name of the source you can use

% toco au mic
     ID        ra       dec     pmRA  pmDEC    eclong     eclat    Tmag Vmag Kmag Teff   rad      mass     d

Target name: V* AU Mic
The target is in constellation Microscopium

Finding whether data is in the archive

You are able to find out whether there is TESS data available in the archive for any target by using the --stored flag, or -s for short.

% toco L 98-59 -s
    ID        ra       dec    pmRA  pmDEC    eclong     eclat    Tmag  Vmag Kmag  Teff    rad     mass      d

Target name: L   98-59
The target is in constellation Volans
FFI data at MAST for sectors:   [1, 2, 5, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12]
2-min data at MAST for sectors: [2, 5, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12]
20-s data at MAST for sectors:  []

Finding whether data will be available

You are able to find out whether there the target will be observable in the next TESS cycle using the --future flag, or -f for short.

% toco L 98-59 -f
The target is in constellation Volans

Future: Will be observable in Cycle 7 sectors:  [88 89 90 96]
