Wqed (pronounced "Wicked") is a set of tools developed by the Delaware Asteroseismic Research Center (DARC) to simplify the process of reducing time-series CCD data on variable stars. It does not provide tools to measure the brightness of stars in individual frames, focusing instead on what comes next:- selecting and removing data lost to cloud, - removing the effects of light cloud and seeing variations, - keeping track of what star a given data set refers to, and when that data was taken, and - performing barycentric corrections to data.
