From K2/Kepler to TESS: Data preparation
Mikkel Lund (University of Birmingham)
With data from the The Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) the seismic community is faced with a new set of challenges concerning the preparation of data. The TESS Asteroseismic Science Operations Center (TASOC) is tasked with delivering light curves ready for asteroseismic analysis to the TESS Asteroseismic Science Community (TASC) for each target observed by TESS. This includes the extraction of data from full frame images (FFIs), obtained every 30 minutes, and preparation of a large number of targets observed with a 1 minute cadence. In this talk I will present the current status of the preparations for the delivery of data products, comparison to the products served for the Kepler and K2 missions, and an assessment of the differences that can be expected in terms of photometric quality.
