Since the failure of the second reaction wheel, the Kepler telescope provides the community with K2 observations along the ecliptic plane with degraded photometric precision due to the pointing drift of the spacecraft. We present a data reduction procedure to restore the near-original Kepler photometric precision from the short cadence K2 observations. The lightcurve, derived system parameters and starspot analysis of the first short cadence K2 WASP target, WASP 85, is presented.
