  • While the Kepler Mission was designed to look at tens of thousands of faint stars (V > 12), brighter stars that saturated the detector are important because they can be and have been observed very accurately by other instruments. By analyzing the unsaturated scattered-light `halo' around these stars, we have retrieved precise light curves of most of the brightest stars in K2 fields from Campaign~4 onwards. The halo method does not depend on the detailed cause and form of systematics, and we… CONTINUE READING
