Visually Surveying TESS with LcTools Light Curve Viewer

        LcTools screen presentation of known dwarf nova TIC 369705840

Allan R. Schmitt created the publicly available LcTools program for amateur and veteran astronomers to visually survey the NASA TESS data base in detail from the convenience of your computer at home. LcTools is not a crowd sourcing (citizen science) project and gives one the independence to visually scroll through the TESS light curves with incredible light curve resolution and speed.  It is a Windows based program with powerful features for analysis and is user friendly.  

If you are interested in visually looking for new discoveries in the TESS data I highly recommend that you contact Allan and download his software.
