(Abstract only) As a continuation of our software development as part of the TESS ground-based follow-up network, we have been able to produce the data products necessary for a TESS submission. Currently we are able to produce a photometry measurement table, light curve, seeing profile, a field of labeled apertures, and corresponding measurement files. We have made one successful submission to TESS, and we are now working on streamlining the analysis process for other submissions. We are also able to measure the photometry of variable stars in the field and have observed a possible new variable in the field we submitted to TESS.
