I am working with JWST data. I want to estimate the redshift of the sources I have identified with SEXtractor with the help of prospector. Can somebody guide me in this?

    $\begingroup$ My question is off topic: what is a "prospector". $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Prospector is a package to conduct principled inference of stellar population properties from photometric and/or spectroscopic data using flexible models. One can use it to estimate redshift of sources by fitting an SED. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ The initial data arrives on Earth from JWT. Where can I watch them? I would like to see the structure and what they look like in general. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ The initial JWST data can be downloaded from MAST(Mikulski Archive for Space Telescopes), I have an extracted source list with magnitudes and errors, and want to exctarct redshift from such a catalogue $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Then first we need to understand how a prospector works. Surely there must be some examples. Perhaps you can get some information from here prospect.readthedocs.io/en/latest/tutorial.html iopscience.iop.org/article/10.3847/2041-8213/acba99/pdf github.com/bd-j/prospector/blob/main/doc/quickstart.rst $\endgroup$
