Class for handling astronomical coordinates

AstroCoords is a class for manipulating and transforming astronomical coordinates. Can handle the following coordinate types

  • Equatorial RA/Dec, galactic including proper motions and parallax
  • Planets
  • Comets/Asteroids
  • Fixed locations in azimuth and elevations
  • Interpolated apparent coordinates

For time dependent calculations a telescope location and reference time must be provided. See AstroTelescope and DateTime for details on specifying location and reference epoch.
