pyNRC - Python ETC and Simulator for JWST NIRCam¶
pyNRC is a set of Python-based tools for planning observations with JWST NIRCam. It includes an ETC, a simple image slope simulator, and an enhanced data simulator. This package works for a variety of NIRCam observing modes including direct imaging, coronagraphic imaging, slitless grism spectroscopy, DHS observations, and weak lens imaging. All PSFs are generated via WebbPSF (https://webbpsf.readthedocs.io) to reproduce realistic JWST images and spectra.
