We make use the eleanor package to produce over 1.5 million light curves from TESS data for more than 160 thousand Kepler and TESS objects. These light curves are stored locally to allow future work to be done. We also provide python scripts to make use of eleanor for obtaining and viewing these light curves. Additionally, we make use of Kepler, TESS, and multiple ground-based observations to refine measurements of the Kepler-16 circumbinary system. We obtain mass values of 0.6843 ± 0.0014M, 0.20133 ± 0.00032M, and 91.83 ± 1.05M⊕, and radius values of 0.64959 ± 0.00052, 0.22545 ± 0.00020R, and 8.4691 ± 0.0088R⊕ for Kepler-16A, Kepler 16B, and Kepler-16b, respectively.
