A Bigger Picture

  • Ahnamal by Ahnamal

    Hi guys,

    I'm new on here and really enjoying participating! I'm wondering if its possible to add a feature where we can see more of the light curve data before making a decision on transits or other features. I feel like it would be useful to sort of zoom out and get a feel for the character of the star before deciding if something its doing is unusual. Or, if not, can you tell me why its preferable to only give us month sized chunks to look at?

    What would be nice in the same vein as your question, would be to be able to resize the magnitude scale. I'd hazard a guess in answer to your question that maybe they only have access to a database divided into months of data, and the program can only distribute it like that on this project.
