# Transit model with finite integration time¶

If the instrumental integration times are significant, the observed transit
light-curve can show an apparent distortion, which is the consequence of
integrating over a fraction of the transit (e.g., Kipping 1). To take this effect into account,
the *PalFitRebin* class can be used, which calculates the model on a finer
grid and than averages to obtain the actual light curve:
