Wqed: Lightcurve Analysis Suite

[c]Wqed: Lightcurve Analysis Suite[/c][/b]
Abstract: Wqed (pronounced "Wicked") is a set of tools developed by the Delaware Asteroseismic Research Center (DARC) to simplify the process of reducing time-series CCD data on variable stars. It does not provide tools to measure the brightness of stars in individual frames, focusing instead on what comes next:
- selecting and removing data lost to cloud,
- removing the effects of light cloud and seeing variations,
- keeping track of what star a given data set refers to, and when that data was taken, and
- performing barycentric corrections to data.
