Programmatic and Bulk Download Page

TESS Bulk Downloads

MAST offers programmatic access to many of the TESS data products. There is an API and an astroquery package that offers access to TESS data products within the Portal. You can automatically download files, given their MAST URL, using wget or cURL. For a summary of ways to search and download data, see this Archive Manual page.

On this page, you can find download options for several different TESS products. Some products are available to directly download via links, such as the engineering files. Others are provided via curl scripts to sequentially download a large number of files, such as getting all the FFI files from a given sector, or all light curve files for a given Guest Investigator program.
