Kepler Instrument Handbook (July, 2009)
- provides information about the design,
performance, and operational constraints of the Kepler hardware, and an
overview of the pixel data sets available.
Data which would be unwieldy to print in this document format are included in
Supplement tar file.
Supplement files are called out in the text, and a README
file in the tar file also gives a brief description of the files contained.

Kepler Data Characteristics Handbook (KSCI - 19040 - 004)
Data Processing Handbook (April, 2011) -
describes the selection of targets and specifications of their associated pixel sets, the transformation of these pixel sets into calibrated and corrected photometric time series, and the detection and validation of transits in those time series by the analysis Pipeline developed and operated by the Kepler Science Operation Center (SOC).
