A modular exposure time calculator for the ESBO telescope.
This repository contains the source code of the ESBO-ETC, a highly modular exposure time calculator.
ESBO-ETC aims on modelling the physical aspect of light coming from a target through optical components (e.g. atmosphere, mirrors, lenses, ...) on the detector. The set up of this so called optical pipeline can be individually defined using a configuration file. Additionally, the thermal emission of optical components, the obstruction of components as well as different PSFs including pointing jitter can be considered.
Finally, ESBO-ETC allows the computation of either the necessary exposure time for a desired SNR, the SNR for a given exposure time or, in case of a BlackBodyTarget, the sensitivity as the minimum apparent magnitude for a given exposure time and SNR. All computations support a batch-mode, allowing to compute multiple scenarios at once.
