Aperture Photometry Tool, v. 2.8.2, Available Now!

Aperture Photometry Tool, v. 2.8.2, is now available:


There are enhancements in this release.

Upgraded the Simple Photometric Calibration Tool to allow either decimal or sexagesimal coordinates in the input lists.

Added a -v command-line option to allow users to control the verbosity of the standard output (adding the associated code logic in all the needed places is a work in progress):

APT.csh or APT.bat, v. 2.8.2

Interactive-Mode: Refrain from using both -i and -s options below together.

Batch-Mode: Use both -i and -s options below together; other available options can also be used.

Command-Line Options Available:
 -i input FITS-image filename
 -p user_preferences filename
 -s input_source_list_filename or "sourceListByAPT" for automatic source-list creation
 -o output aperture-photometry-table filename
 -b output local_non-annulus_sky_background filename; always computed, but applied only when Model F (noSkyFlag=5) is specified
 -z calibrated image magnitude zero point
 -v verbosity level; default is zero; 0 or 1 is currently recognized

Thanks to Paul Leyland for these suggestions.
