15th Aug 2019: Final release of K2 high-cadence guide star photometry

About two years ago we announced the release of Kepler and K2 C0–C12 Fine Guidance Sensor (FGS) data. These data provide photometry and centroid positions for the guide stars that were used to main stable spacecraft pointing. These data contain the highest time sampling possible with Kepler, with integration …
