import stis_cti

Other utilities:

  • stis_cti.StisPixCteCorr(…) – Code to run pixel-based CTI-correction on intermediate products
  • stis_cti.viable_ccd_file(…) – Test to see which FITS files on which to run the correction
  • stis_cti.archive_dark_query(…) – Utility to query MAST for needed component darks
