Returns a LightCurve object given a light curve file from TGLC HLSP

By default, TGLC’s cal_psf_flux values are used for the flux column. No errors are provided by this HLSP.

Note this reader does not use the TGLC_FLAG extension to inform the bitmask for the returned light curve, but those flags can still be accessed.

Which column in the FITS file contains the preferred flux data? By default the “Corrected PSF Flux” flux (CAL_PSF_FLUX) is used.

quality_bitmaskstr or int

Bitmask (integer) which identifies the quality flag bitmask that should be used to mask out bad cadences. If a string is passed, it has the following meaning:

  • “none”: no cadences will be ignored (quality_bitmask=0).

  • “default”: cadences with flags indicating AttitudeTweak, SafeMode, CoarsePoint, EarthPoint, Desat, or ManualExclude will be ignored.

  • “hard”: cadences with default flags, ApertureCosmic, CollateralCosmic, Straylight, or Straylight2 will be ignored.

  • “hardest”: cadences with all the above flags will be ignored, in addition to cadences with GSFC-ELEANOR-LITE bit flags of 17 (decimal value 131072) and 18 (decimal value 262144).
