MIRI Time-Series Observations

MIRI currently has full support for time-series observations (TSOs) with the low-resolution spectrometer (LRS) and limited support with the imager.

The stability of the JWST observatory enables very precise spectro- and imaging photometry of time-variable objects. Such time-series observations (TSOs) will be useful for characterizing transiting exoplanets, but will also be used for other sources such as eclipsing binaries and cataclysmic variables.

MIRI currently allows for TSO observations in the following modes:
