Configuration

Lightkurve uses Astropy’s configuration system for configurable parameters.

Users can set their defaults in their configuration file, defaulted at $HOME/.lightkurve/config/lightkurve.cfg.

Furthermore, they can also change the values at runtime via lightkurve.conf object.

The remaining specifics can be found in Astropy documentation.
