This is a repository of figures of the spectral fitting and light curve analyses we performed on some X-ray sources matched to stars in the Praesepe and Hyades open clusters. On X-ray bright sources, we used spectral fitting techniques to extract source flux and coronal parameters. On X-ray light curves with large flare events, we defined time ranges for the flare events and then excluded counts within those time ranges from our X-ray data extraction. The X-ray data were obtained from the Chandra X-ray Observatory, the Neil Gehrels Swift Observatory, and XMM-Newton.
