Astronomical data reduction with THELI
THELI is a tool for the automated reduction of astronomical images.
It comes in two flavours which are maintained independently:
- A graphical user interface
The THELI GUI is a very flexible and interactive tool, offering a broad range of routines for optical, near- and mid-infrared images. Many different instruments from observatories world-wide are pre-configured. Recommended for the general user. Please continue here.
- A set of command-line based scripts
This version is suitable for survey work, i.e. you have a very large number of different pointings taken with the same optical instrument. Contrary to the GUI, it can be run in batch mode, and also on a Linux cluster. The scripts are mainly optimised for blank fields, and they need to be configured manually to suit the data for your instrument. Please continue here.
If your scientific publication is based on either version of THELI, then please cite the following
