NGTS DR2 lightcurve download

Space-Meerkat 10 months ago in Product types and search updated by Archive Science Group 10 months ago 2

Hi,

I am trying to download the processed photometric lightcurve .fits files for the second NGTS data release. I'm very new to using the ESO's platforms, so although I've found the sky map downloading interface, and the light curve catalogue, I can't seem to find a way to simply download the entire ~4TB set of .fits files. Ideally there would be a place whereby one could click "request dataset" and a remote download link would be emailed but it's getting to that correct "request dataset" place that I'm struggling with.

I'd love any help on this matter and I realise this is probably a very basic question!

Thanks in advance!

Hi!

Correct, one other possibility is that after selecting your data via the Science Portal, you can chose the option of downloading the shell script, as shown in the image, which will download the data.

You just need to make the script executable (chmod u+x ) and run it from the command line. Note: the download script requires wget to be installed on your computer.

I hope this helps.

Ah I found that you can request the files using the ESO Catalogue Facility.
