Curvit

Curvit: An open-source Python package to generate light curves from UVIT data. Curvit is an open-source Python package that facilitates the creation of light curves from the data collected by the Ultra-Violet Imaging Telescope (UVIT) onboard AstroSat, India’s first multi-wavelength astronomical satellite. The input to Curvit is the calibrated events list generated by the UVIT-Payload Operation Center (UVIT-POC) and made available to the principal investigators through the Indian Space Science Data Center. The features of Curvit include (i) automatically detecting sources and generating light curves for all the detected sources and (ii) custom generation of light curve for any particular source of interest. We present here the capabilities of Curvit and demonstrate its usability on the UVIT observations of the intermediate polar FO Aqr as an example. Curvit is publicly available on GitHub at https://github.com/prajwel/curvit
