Pure Python package for retrieving PHOENIX model stellar spectra via FTP. Spectra are returned as specutils.Spectrum1D objects. The source code is available on GitHub.

Basic Usage#

Let’s get a Sun-like spectrum:

from expecto import get_spectrum

spectrum = get_spectrum(
    T_eff=5800, log_g=4.5, cache=False

and let’s plot that spectrum:

import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
from astropy.visualization import quantity_support

with quantity_support():
    plt.plot(spectrum.wavelength, spectrum.flux)
