beast.plotting.plot_ast_histogram.plot_ast_histogram(ast_file, sed_grid_file=None)[source]

Make a histogram of the AST fluxes. If an SED grid is given, also plot a comparison histogram of the SED fluxes.

The histogram bins are set by the bins originally used to create the ASTs (using the flux bin method), which are saved in ast_file.replace(‘inputAST’,’ASTfluxbins’) and are automatically read in.

Output plot is saved in the same location/name as ast_file, but with a .png instead of .txt.
