Dear Help Desk, 

I have a bunch of light curves with a one second binning, I have a couple of
questions:

*How can I rebbin them to a new specific time bin easily? 
*How can I convert them to ascii easily? 

Thank you very much in advance, 

Best regards, 

Graciela

Dear Graciela,

you can extract lightcurves with different time resolution using the SAS task
'evselect' and the keyword 'timebinsize', as described here:
https://www.cosmos.esa.int/web/xmm-newton/sas-thread-timing
If you prefer using a graphical interface, you can follow the steps outlined
here:
https://www.cosmos.esa.int/web/xmm-newton/sas-thread-timing-gui

The SAS only produces files according to the FITS standard. To convert them to
ASCII I would recommend to use other software like IDL or Python with the
AstroPy package. Within these software frameworks you should also be able to do
the rebinning, if you do not want to re-extract lightcurves for each binning you
require.

Hope that helps,
 Felix

Dear Felix,

Yes, I am trying to rebin the light curves without producing them again. I
will try atrophy or IDL and see how it works,

Thank you very much for your help,

Regards,

Graciela
