How I can bin a magnitude phase-folded lightcurve? I take mean values magnitudes and it's uncertainties but this is wrong.

    $\begingroup$ Welcome to Astronomy Stack Exchange! Can you edit your question to provide a few more details about what exactly it is you tried that was wrong, and what kind of binning you want to achieve? $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Magnitudes are logarithmic, so taking the mean of them is incorrect. You should take the mean flux and then turn it into a magnitude. $\endgroup$
